Kurt Angle told TMZ Thursday he sustained a major injury which could jeopardize his mission to wrestle at the 2012 Summer Olympics Games.
Angle, who won a gold medal for heavyweight freestyle wrestling at the 1996 Games, called in to TMZ Live and explained, “I injured my hamstring this morning, it is a tear.”
The Impact Wrestling Superstar says the injury occurred during a training session this morning and he has an MRI scheduled for Friday
He says, “I still plan on going [to the Olympics] … I’ve been training for a whole year now … so it all depends on how it heals … but if this tear is really bad, there’s a chance I may not go.”
