Unfortunately Max has sustained an injury during a training camp and had to pull out of all competitions that he was due to attend for the rest of the year. He sustained a knee injury in training and received the scan results a few days later. 

He has a grade 2 LCL tear, a partial ACL tear and is currently in a leg brace. He is still training hard and doing his rehab with an aim to compete at the British championships in December. Sadly, this does mean that he’ll miss out on the -23 European Championships this year.

It happened during training at the national centre, his partner came in for a throw during sparring and buckled Max’s knee in the process.

However the comeback is always bigger that the set back, so if he is ready in time he hopes to smash it at the British championships or other events in the new year. Unfortunately, this is just the life of being an athlete and we wish him a speedy recovery.
