Jefferey Herlings underwent a successful operation this morning, to remove metal plated from his body. Herlings will not be able to do any motor training for six weeks, but he will be completely encumbrance – and pain free, and will have the full range of motion in his ankle and foot again.

Herlings suffered constant discomfort and pain in his foot during this season.

Herlings will after his recovery commence training for the 2020 season, where the goal is to recapture his world title.
