Misty May-Treanor, 31, who is a professional beach volleyball player and the contestant of People's Choice Award winning reality show "Dancing with the stars", suffered an injury on Friday afternoon while rehearsing and now she is out of the competition. DWTS will miss a promising contestant.
"It's such a sad situation," Her cast mate Brooke said Monday during a radio interview, "She did hurt her Achilles tendon. I don't know if she tore it or she ruptured it. It happened this week. She's out of the competition, I mean, just like that." Misty told Star, "I had problems with this ankle in March so I knew it was delicate, but I just can't believe it broke and I am off the show now!" "I will have to stay off this ankle for a long while. There is no way I can compete now. It's so sad! I really wanted to win. Now I have no chance."
It seems the injury is as serious as Burke said, "Forget about the competition," "This is her jumping mechanism, so we're all really concerned for her. She may be having surgery this week. We don't know yet. But it's such a bummer." This is not the first injury on this season of DWTS. Comedian Jeffrey Ross suffered a corneal scratch during rehearsal on the first week of the show. I think this season takes the credit for most injuries and it's only been on a few weeks! All the best for her future. I hope the show can find the winner without anymore injuries!
