Mohammed Balooshi talks with Sport 360° about his return
Blogpost from Sport 360°
“Sport360° caught up with the 36-year-old to talk about his journey back from the crash, how the recovery period was a blessing in disguise and his motivation for the coming season.
Where are you at right now in your recovery from the injuries?
Yeah, good. I have five more weeks until the season opener, so I’m quite back to normal. It has been really tough, especially the first few weeks, but I now feel like it’s back to normal. I have some nagging pains, but it’s okay, it’s part of the sport.
When you suffered the crash in April, how concerned were you about your riding career?
I was more concerned with my head, not so much about my knee because I knew my knee I could repair. I’ve broken my bones all over my body many times so I knew this was going to be okay. But I banged my head quite hard and it was really tough the first three, four weeks because I kept having the spins. The room would spin whenever I woke up and laid down. This was worrying me a bit after the CAT scan and MRI, but luckily, it was just a bad, bad crash and time would heal it and it did.”
