Mikolas Josef has released a statement regarding his current health condition following his first semi final fall. And hallelujah — he can walk!
After several days of keeping us in suspense, and three hospital stays later, Mikolas has said he is feeling a lot better. He was able to walk yesterday, and is awaiting the results of CT scans to ensure that there is no damage to his spine.
Mikolas was taken to hospital shortly after his first rehearsal, with fears that he injured his back during his high level acrobatics. Bringing his signature sass and wood bamboo to the big stage in Lisbon, he impressed with a diverse performance, and there were no telltale signs of injury during the performance. He did, however, stop his first rehearsal due to what he perceived as a potential health and safety issue on the stage.
In the press conference, Mikolas’ team stated that Mikolas aggravated his back due to the high acrobatic nature of his performance. No doubt his performance brought the house down, but it looks as if it may have come at a cost to his health.
Mikolas remains in good spirits despite his injury. We wish him all the best in his recovery.
