Philip Köster currently sits in fifth place in the overall rankings - which includes an event victory in the 4-star Chile event - however, it seems the German's season will be cut short after a checkup at a foot specialist revealed broken ligaments in his lifranc joint, which required surgery. Everyone from the PWA wishes Philip all the best with his rehabilitation and looks forward to seeing him competing again soon.
Philip Köster (Severne / Severme Sails / Black Project Fins): "Operation went well, the ligaments were stitched and additionally some screws provide more stability. I am in very good spirits about the healing process. After my bad knee injury in 2016, I came back stronger than before and became world champion again directly the following year. If I could achieve that again, that would be great.Thanks to Red Bull Germany for taking such good care of me! Soon it is time to head to Austria to get physiotherapy started at the Red Bull performance center."
