Dake's hand?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give a definitive answer on what happened to Dake's hand, and whether it happened before or during the tournament? I've been hearing "Broken", but is that in any way confirmed? If so, what kind of recovery time does that entail?

 

And how would you stack this injury up vs. Burroughs's ankle? Personally, I don't think that Bronze Medal match would've been as close as it was had Dake commanded full control of both hands.

I'm going to guess that it might be hurt but not broken. Let's be honest here, while this is a big tournament, this isn't the World Championships or the Olympics. If Dake broke his hand before this tournament, he wouldn't have wrestled and if he broke it during the tournament, he would have defaulted out. The same thing would have gone for Burroughs and any other US athlete as it pertains to this tournament. If it was World's/Olympics then they would definitely go out hurt and compete.

Yes, that's true. But it seems pretty obvious that even if his hand was not broken, he could barely use it. But he beat Tsargush anyway (who recently teched Taylor, BTW) and that's pretty awesome.
