MANSFIELD – Jason Mezhibovsky has no problem either spelling or pronouncing the medical term “triangular fibrocartilage complex.”
Pole vaulting with the wrist ailment was another story.
“I tore it at the end of my sophomore and finally got surgery for it at the end of my junior year,” Mezhibovsky said.
“I’m not saying it was the worst injury or that it completely prevented me from vaulting. But it did make it a lot harder to do the things I wanted to do, technique-wise.”
With the condition also known as “TFCC” behind him, the NV/Demarest senior is now flying high.
