What happened to Mikko?

I know that he's out and needed medical attention. I also heard something about an eardum AND about a stingray. Can anyone offer a little more info?

One way or another, here's a good recovery - I'm disappointed about missing guys like him and Rob O.

Mike

The story was that he got kicked in the head and burst his eardrum.

Yep. Tough deal. Sh_t happens though. I was really hoping to see him do well this year.

Re: What happened to Mikko?

What was all that talk about a stingray? Probably one person started that rumor and everyone on here started believing it (besides the smart dudes, which does not include me).

That is a bit of bad luck. Mikko is strong and a great competitor, no doubt about that.

Sure sounds like a concussion!

Re: What happened to Mikko?

I read where someone asked how he was and he replied that he was so dizzy that there was no way he could compete on Saturday.
