via www.dailytelegraph.com.au: The Commonwealth Games relay gold medallist Kenrick Monk, who also competed at the Beijing Olympics and the recent world championships in Shanghai, was left unconscious after being hit by a car in Brisbane on Wednesday afternoon.
GMM: Monk was apparently on his way to swim practice. Nick D'Arcy and Stephanie Rice rushed in to help their fellow swim star moments after the violent incident.
"I have broken my elbow in two places which is obviously really disappointing at this stage of the preparation for the Olympic trials in March next year,'' Monk told The Telegraph.
Monk thinks he was hit on purpose. He didn't give details for his theory. He will be out of training for 8 weeks, which will certainly effect his performance leading into London 2012.
