His career is thus thwarted. “My physiotherapy kept me busy. I’m doing my routines every day and I’m focusing on my number one goal right now: walking alone. Take one step at a time, ”said the athlete after the accident.
However, during his rehabilitation period, an unexpected guest appeared: his son charlie wood. The 12-year-old brought back the illusion to Tiger.
