Florence on That Fateful Alley-Oop

Hawaiian phenom John John Florence (HAW) has withdrawn from the Fiji Pro. He injured himself while filming in Brazil, when he landed awkwardly on an alley-oop and rolled his ankle. While he took some time to consider staying in the draw for the contest in paradise, he ultimately needed more time to heal, and is now looking ahead to the J-Bay Open, which has a waiting period of July 8-19.

Get the latest injury news, including details about Michel Bourez (PYF) and Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), who have also bowed out of Stop No. 5 of the Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour.
