Evgeny Rylov Rehabbing from Shoulder Injury

Evgeny Rylov, 2017 world champion in the 200 back and former World Junior Record holder in the 50 back, is in the process of rehabbing a shoulder injury, according to Russian news outlet R-Sport.

Russian National Team Head Coach Sergei Kolmogorov told the site that Rylov is in the second stage of rehabbing and injury that he has been dealing with since the 2017 FINA World Championships, where he won the 200 back.

Rylov began rehab after several visits to clinics in Germany, and received detailed instructions for a continued conservative approach that was to take six weeks. The prospect of a minor surgical procedure was not ruled out, but it’s unclear at this time if that procedure took place.

He already missed the 2017 Russian Short Course Nationals, and will miss the European Short Course Championships, taking place in December.

The 21-year old is expected to be back in action in February.

Is it his knee or his shoulder?




Good news for Murphy. Gives him some time to catch back up to Rylov


Murphy was never behind…. just because he had an off year at worlds doesn’t mean A WORLD RECORD HOLDER is behind by any means


Rylov was only 0.01 faster than Murphy’s time from Rio and Murphy had an off post Olympic year which is common. I’m sure he’ll be back to form come next worlds and definitely for 2020


2020 is Kliment Kolesnikov time.


Definitely excited to see what he can do, He’ll only be 20 in 2020 and is already throwing down crazy times, It might not be too crazy to think that there will be two russians on the podium


He has been dealing with the injury since JUNE and almost decided to withdraw from WC. He still won the 200 with the injury but it caused his no-show in 50&100.
