Micah Lawrence suffered an injury to her lower leg while in Australia competing at the BHP Billiton Aquatic Super Series and taking part in a training trip with her SwimMAC teammates.
The severity and cause of the injury were not directly specified.
Lawrence is slated to stay in Australia with the team until their scheduled leave back to the United States. So far she has undergone examinations that have speculated her return to training next week.
Upon her return to the United States she will receive a full examination from Team Elite’s physician, Dr. Jason Batley.
This injury comes shortly after two very successful swims at the BHP Billiton Aquatic Super Series where she earned herself a silver medal in both the 100m breaststroke and 200m breaststroke. Her 100 was a 1:07.48, and her 200 a 2:25.19.
The time was faster than her performances from the Arena Pro Swim Series Austin where she was a 2:25.75 in the 200 for first place.
Lawrence was expected to swim at the next stop on the Pro Swim Series in Orlando February 12-14, and following the injury there has not been a statement released which indicates differently thus far.
