The ASP just announced John John Florence (HAW) sustained an ankle injury after attempting a full rotation during the Expression Session on Saturday. The injury forced Florence to withdraw from the remainder of the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast. His Round 3 opponent, Adam Melling, will proceed to the next round automatically.
The severity of the injury is unknown, but this is a tremendous set back for Florence in only his second year on tour. With impressive scores in Round 1, Florence was looking like a serious contender for the win. Hopefully, he takes this time to rest and get back on his feet for the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach.
