By way of introduction - in spite of all we say about prehab, prevention, etc., one thing is certain: a high performance athlete is going to get injured several times in his career. There are many protocols offered by highly accomplished professionals about how to "train around injuries". How about how to compete around injuries? That's harder.

That's the case of all time record breaker Jordan Wong. Follow his training and writing.
