Krauss breaks foot

By Susan Westemeyer

Training is dangerous to your health: Gerolsteiner's Sven Krauss learned that lesson the hard way on Thursday night. He broke a bone in his right foot while running in a gym. "It happened during a perfectly routine action. I ran, I stopped, and suddenly it cracked.

"It has to be operated on, because the break is directly under a tendon," said the 23 year-old. Surgeons at the Sportklinik Stuttgart are expected to put a screw in the bone today. "It is planned as in-and-out surgery, so I assume I will be home again this evening," according to Krauss. If all goes well he should be able to resume training within 10 to 14 days.
