Add Nick Urankar to the growing list of athletes who have been injured on the ring dips this year. Pec tears decimated the East Regional last weekend and it appears to have traveled to the Central Regional.
Urankar was the first athlete to complete the 21 dumbbell snatches and to make it to the rings. But on his very first ring dip Urankar comes down and is down for the rest of the event. Because he did not complete one full round, Urankar has been eliminated from the rest of the weekend.
Watch the video below and watch Lane 9 (2nd from the bottom). Urankar doesn’t appear to be in pain so it might be an injury that happened prior to competition and was too much to continue on.
