That sucks if she is really hurt. If she is though, I'll take care of her and bring her back to healthly status.

Nicola txt me and said she blew everything in her knee. Sux. Top 3 girls were pushing each other as well.

wakekat15 06-12-2010 5:09 PM

THAT is HORRIBLE news! Sure hate to hear it....

clearlakeirene 06-12-2010 5:44 PM

Wow that is horrible!!! She is so great to watch!! I would imagine she tore ACL and maybe PCL if she landed stiff-knee. If you get clarification let us know.
I will be curious what surgeon she goes to. I need to have an ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair in Sept, and would love to know what docs the wakeboarding world has used.

xistential 06-12-2010 5:57 PM

She did it on a T2B apparently. Sill won her heat as well.

solo 06-12-2010 8:16 PM

ACL, MCL, and PCL in her right knee

ryan_shima1 06-12-2010 8:32 PM

That really sucks! Wishing you a full and speedy recovery Dallas!

clearlakeirene 06-12-2010 10:51 PM

WOW, thats a strange triad of injuries. She must have REALLY hyperextended her knee and forced it inward too. So sorry Dallas!! If anyone can come back stronger from this, you can!!

cheesydog 06-13-2010 7:46 PM

that is the worst news... and all the ligaments too, that will be a long hard recovery Im thinking

joe_crawley 06-13-2010 8:43 PM

"thats a strange triad of injuries"

Actually that's a pretty standard rupture of the knee during a dislocation. Several pro's have received that same triple. Good luck Dallas! She'll be back next season ripping again

clearlakeirene 06-13-2010 9:07 PM

Actually, that is definitely not a standard rupture of the knee. And most likely her knee was not "dislocated". A patellar dislocation is common, but does not tear intracapsular ligaments. Aside from that a knee can really only be "dislocated" in a high force blunt trauma incident. A PCL tear is quite rare in any sport. An MCL tear is pretty rare in wakeboarding because it usually takes an outside blow to the knee to fully tear. The usual injury in wakeboarding is ACL and Meniscus tear. So if those 3 ligaments are truely torn, it took a pretty high force on landing, or she landed in the most optimal position to torque on the knee. Very unfortunate. :-(

Sorry Dallas... Get well soon.

Actually, that is definitely not a standard rupture of the knee. And most likely her knee was not "dislocated".
Well two of the sports Legends (in a sport with only about 10 true legends) have received the triple- Byerly and Murray, both as a result of dislocation. I know wakeboarders who have received that injury, and I know several female soccer players who have gotten the same injury as well. The idea that a ACL-PCL-MCL rupture is extremely rare is patently false. And MCL tears are not uncommon at all in wakeboarding, snowboarding, or any high impact landing sport.

Like landing awkwardly from 10 feet off the deck.

eubanks01 06-14-2010 10:12 AM

Irene - I'm thinking the MCL is pretty common. I've torn ligaments in my knee 2 times...MCL's alone on different knees. Bury the nose of the board and the lower leg/board stops while your upper leg/body keeps going and your knee will get bent inward. Happened to me twice on two different tricks.

Either way, so sad for Dallas. I hope she stays with it and makes another come back. You have to be very mentally strong to keep going through the PT and work to come back from stuff like this.

alans 06-14-2010 10:18 AM

I did ACL, MCL, and PCL. Doc literally said, yep this is the common Triad that we see with you wake boarders. He was the US Olympic Ski and Snowboard doc.

jarrod 06-14-2010 10:27 AM

Sorry to hear this, Dallas. Someone mentioned it yesterday on the boat, and everyone was bummed out.

Heal up quick. Work hard. Hope to see you back in the game soon.

otown_dave 06-14-2010 10:33 AM

Dam that sucks! After seeing her comeback year with her on top, this year would be a progressive year for the Woman pushing each other. Hope thing go well as can be...

hawkeye7708 06-14-2010 10:49 AM

That's such a bummer man. All that rehab to get back to the top after her broken leg and now this. Jeez.

jcfox00 06-14-2010 2:18 PM

Sorry to hear about this, such a bummer to an awesome rider. If you saw any of her rehab after her femur break, I have no doubt she will be back in no time, this girl is determined! Good luck with recovery

ChrisEbrahimoff 06-21-2010 3:00 PM

That truly does suck...I certainly would doctor her anytime however (I think she is friggin' cute as can be)...anyhow, the rehab is tough, but I certainly think if anyone can come back from this it would be her.
