k0nfig broke his wrist after falling at the airport and will miss at least 4-6 weeks
Complexity player Christian "k0nfig" Wienecke revealed the details of the hand injury that prevented him from playing at ESL Pro League 14. According to the Dane, he broke his wrist as a consequence of falling at the airport. His recovery will take at least 4-6 weeks.
My wrist is broken and dislocated. I will have a surgery tomorrow morning at 07:30. A specialist will do the surgery and i will have to wear a cast for about 4-6 weeks and then some training to get back on track. I love you all, and I'm sorry. I wish I could turn back time. This have really affected me and i feel awful just to talk about it, but lets pray for a good surgery and swift recovery. I do not wish this for my worst enemy.
Wienecke noted that doctors had not considered the injury serious right away, after which he even trained a couple of times with his team.
I was walking and looked at my phone in a airport and slipped in water on the floor, fell and slammed my hand into a handrail which caused the wrist to shatter. Absolutely sounds like a lie and I can't believe that it even is reality.
I went to Serbia and got it checked but they didnt notice the shattered wrist, so i still played a few praccs with the team. Still managed to dominate some teams with a broken wrist btw.
It should be reminded that Niels Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen will temporarily replace k0nfig in Complexity. The team will continue playing at ESL Pro League Season 14 with Niels.
Judging from the full recovery date announced by Wienecke, he is likely to miss BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2021, which will take place on September 16-26.
