Gold medalist Kosuke Hagino announced this week that he has recently undergone elbow surgery and will be out of competition for the remainder of 2016. Hagino had the surgery to remove an extra bone in his right elbow, which was fractured during a training camp in June last year. While his coach, Norimasa Hirai, explained he would be out of his cast within a week, he said Hagino will stay out of competition for the rest of 2016 as they monitor his recovery process. That means that Hagino will miss two high profile events coming up in Tokyo: a World Cup meet and the 2016 Asian Championships. An explanation for the timing of the surgery indicated that the focus was to give Hagino the best set-up for his preparations for the 2020 Olympic Games, which will be held in Tokyo. The Tokyo-based swimmer came away with a gold medal in the 400 IM at the Rio Olympics and a silver medal in the 200 IM.
