World Champion Aaron Wolf out of the game for three months
19 Jan 2018 08:40
Aaron Wolf is injured and will be out of competition for another three months. The Japanese World Champion of Budapest suffers a meniscal lesion.
Since his World title U100kg Wolf didn’t fight anymore. The Japanese Judo Federation announced his absence at the Grand Slam of Paris today where he would make his comeback.
He injured his knee at 15 January. Meniscal lesions cover a wide range of knee injuries, and can cause different types of knee pain based on how they came about. Sports injuries here usually result in stinging pain in the knee, whereas lesions due to banal movements, or cartilage degeneration are more often associated with dull knee pain that flares up during certain movements. His recovery is expected to take three months.
Wolf won his first Grand Prix in 2015 in Mongolia and continued winning the Grand Prix Tashkent in 2015. He won bronze at the 2014 World Junior Championships after he gained the Japanese junior title. In 2016 Wolf took bronze in Paris and Baku Grand Slams and he took silver at the Grand Prix in Düsseldorf last year. His world title was quite a surprise and he took over the title from Ryunosuke Haga.
