Less than two months after hip surgery, I was able to hurdle for the first time. I was nervous to return. My prayer for you guys tonight is that courage always rises when things attempt to intimidate you. Today, I did baby hurdles. Next week I will attempt a taller height. Strive until you overcome the tallest hurdle blocking your path. We are all hurdlers in life. 📹: @gabrielmvumvure
Last year, the Olympic track star and bobsledder, told the Twitterverse that she would be getting surgery for a torn frontal labral. She tweeted:
‘Praise Him in advance.’
She went into surgery to repair a hip labral tear. A hip labral tear involves the ring of cartilage, called the labrum, that follows the outside rim of the socket of your hip joint. The labrum acts like a rubber seal or gasket to help hold the ball at the top of your thighbone securely within your hip socket.
