Not surprising. His injuries were like from a plane crash survivor or something.

Yep. I don't care much that he retired, I'm already very glad to read he can walk more and more and things like that. It's gonna be a very long way (recovery is much harder than being an elite athlete, his words), but as long as he keeps making progress like that, it's good.

:BRA Erika Miranda (Judo), 6-time world medalist, announced her retirement today. She won a medal at each of the last 5 World Championships, including the only brazilian medal at this year's Worlds, and she was in good position to compete in Tokyo, so this is kind of a huge surprise. Health concerns might have motivated the decision.
