I'm not suggesting that Greg Norman isn't human because he's 62-years-old and in good shape. He's an athlete—that's to be expected, no? I'm suggesting he isn't human because WTF?! How is he capable of doing such an intense workout while injured?! Not just a little bit injured, but severely, no less.
According to GOLF—"The Shark tore an aponeurosis in his leg after an injury sustained in a casual tennis match three weeks ago, and was put in a cast to keep the muscle (likely his soleus) immobile for six weeks."
Okay, so I'm NOT being dramatic. Any injury that renders you immobile for six weeks is pretty f'in serious! Just to support my claim, I'm gonna WebMD this sh*t. Hm, so a torn aponeurosis is actually a torn ACL. I've heard of that! Part of me thought it was way, way more complicated, but a torn ACL is pretty common, YET super painful. At least I recall that being the case for like 75023562839 varsity athletes in high school who went through it.
Here, just check out this video so you can understand my slightly over-the-top amazement—
See what I'm saying? IM-PRES-SIVE.
Oh, for those of you who might be unaware of who Greg Norman is but just keep reading out of a boredom, here's a little bio from his website—"Arguably the most successful athlete-turned-businessman in the world, Greg Norman is known as much for his entrepreneurial spirit in the boardroom as his dominance on the golf course. The internationally recognized “Great White Shark” won more than 90 tournaments worldwide, including two British Open Championships, and claims the distinction of having held the No. 1 position in the world rankings for 331 consecutive weeks. As one of the most prolific players in the game’s history, the culmination of an astounding career came in 2001 when he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. In 2009 and 2011, Greg served as the Presidents Cup Captain of the International Team and his strong influence in the game continues today."
