And again we say…hooray for x-rays!

Later that day, Slater showed his impressive break on Instagram and announced his official withdrawal from the competition. He described the injury as “kinda like smashing my foot with a big hammer as hard as I can. Sorta feels like I’m giving birth out of my foot right now!”

Check out the x-ray of his injury below. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Slater!
