Sergey got a spiral fracture of the humerus in a match with Alan Makeyev from Russia.
Here is how Sergey himself tells about it:
“At the very beginning of the fight, I found a convulsion in the area of the pronator, and when an opponent who, thanks to this, managed to get into a deep hook, began to attack, I had almost returned control of the situation. But, apparently, due to the fact that my hand was already twisted due to the pronator's convulsion, something went wrong and I did not even understand what had happened. I got medical help at the venue, and then I was taken to hospital in Gdynia. The road to the hospital took about an hour and all this time I felt a very strong pain. The Polish ambulance team refused to give me a painkiller, and such a fracture couldn’t be frozen. For about an hour I was examined in the hospital, the doctors first tried to treat my elbow, but I told them that it was not the elbow, that it was the humerus. And only then they gave me a painkiller, although I kept asking them to do it before. Apparently Polish doctors have never encountered injuries of this nature.
So I cannot blame the organizers of the Zloty Tur in these unpleasant moments - the whole thing in the Polish health care system. Anyway, thanks to the doctors for help.
In Ukraine, they inserted a modern implant for bone synthesis in my hand. On Wednesday, the stitches will be removed.
My right hand is in great shape and as soon as I can hold the handle of the table, I will return to training.
Why did this happen? In principle, I don’t have any health problems, but it could be weight loss before the Cup, or a large number of competitions in which I participated before the Cup. And perhaps the psychological state also played a role due to what happened to Andrei Pushkar. Constantly think about him. "
