The French crowd was pleased on Saturday with an excellent last final of the day between darling Clarisse Agbegnenou and Olympic Champion Tina Trstenjak, who gave it all to prevent Agbegnenou from winning her fifth victory. The will of Agbegnenou to win that fifth title was great and she gave 100% to beat her Slovenian opponent, but she paid a price.
Agbegnenou: “As you know I got injured at Paris grand slam during the final… I have a sprain of the acromion. I will be away of the tatami for some time… Time for me to take some rest. I will come back stronger.”
The AC joint is the attachment site of your collarbone (clavicle) and the acromion (knob/tip of your AC sprainshoulder). It is held together by three ligaments which are acromioclavicular, coracoclavicular, and the coracoacromial ligaments. When direct force is applied to the areas stated above, injury to one or multiple of the ligaments can cause AC joint pain and instability. AC sprains are a common injury that can occur from a number of different reasons.
Two of the most common ways people injure their AC joint is by falling on an outstretched arm or falling directly on the tip of the shoulder. Another way to people sprain an AC joint is to run directly into something, such as a tree while skiing, with great force. Contact sports such as football, judo and rugby commonly see AC joint injuries due to the velocity in which athletes fall or take a hit. If you do sustain an AC sprain the most important thing is to rest and follow doctor’s orders.
Hope you enjoy it
