Emma Keane out of Commonwealth Games with ankle injury

Injury setback: Bermuda squash player Emma Keane, right, before round of 32 defeat by Georgia Adderley, of Scotland. Keane has been forced to withdraw from the rest of the Commonwealth Games after suffering an ankle injury

Bermuda squash player Emma Keane has seen her Commonwealth Games campaign cut short prematurely after suffering a ligament tear in her right ankle.

Keane sustained the injury after slipping on the court during her 11-1, 11-3, 11-1 defeat by Georgia Adderley, of Scotland, in the round of 32 yesterday.

The 26-year-old was due to compete in the plate competition but has now been forced to withdraw from the Games.

“Unfortunately, Emma suffered an ligament tear in her ankle halfway through the second game after a slip on the court,” said coach Micah Franklin.

“She managed to finish the match before soon feeling the pain once the adrenalin subsided.

“Due to the injury Emma has been forced to withdraw from the plate, therefore sadly ending her time on court at the Commonwealth Games.

“Let’s all join in wishing her a speedy recovery and congratulate her on a hugely successful journey to make it here.”
