In an interview with Gymnastics Now, Malone disclosed the details of his injury stating, “It’s called a tibial plateau fracture. So when my leg dislocated, where the femur and tibia meet, the tibia kind of rotated and went [the wrong way] and a little piece of the top chipped off and fractured, like completely away from the bone.”
In the same interview, Malone's expected return to comeptition was scheduled for April of 2024. Three months ahead of schedule, the 2020 Olympian will compete on pommel horse, still rings, and parallel bars.
The Houston National Invitational will take place Saturday, January 20 at 7:00 pm CT. More information on the competition can be found here.
