Olympic gold medallist Mahe Drysdale has escaped serious
injury after crashing into a truck on a training ride in
South Korea on Monday.
The 34-year-old was training for the upcoming world rowing
championships when the crash occurred and it will not affect
his participation in the event.
Despite some bruising and grazes to his knees and knuckles,
Drysdale hasn't missed any training but will likely stay off
the bike until after the world champs.
It's the second cycling accident Drysdale has had in the last
14 months, after injuring his shoulder in a crash that forced
him to miss the final World Cup regatta ahead of the London
Olympics last year.
Drysdale will contest the men's single sculls heats on Sunday
