On the 21st July I started rehabilitation process of Goal Keeper Imran (No:1 Goal Keeper of Maldivian National Team & Victory Sports Club). On the post I wrote regarding his rehabilitation I mentioned that his rehabilitation process will take estimated 4 ½ Months.
Today I have concluded his rehabilitation process and he is fit to play. From day one of rehab process (21st July) it took 4 months and 19 days for the total process until today (11th December). All credit goes to Imran for his dedication and effort on training.
Following rapture on his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and a sprain in Lateral Colleteral Ligament he did an Anterior Cruciate Liagment reconstruction which needed him a proper strength and conditioning phase to bring him back to field.
When I started his rehabilitation process I had pressure, as he was a requirement for the National Team in SAFF championship which was scheduled for mid December at that time (later delayed to mid 2008). For him to play the SAFF championship was always secondary, the priority was for him to be 100% fit for the game.
Imran has been a dedicated and disciplined athlete, We have had a close rapport during the past 4 ½ months which helped him to undertake his training as scheduled. Below are some stats which he has been tested for.
100m Sprint: 13 Seconds
400m Sprint: 1 Minute 03 Seconds
5000m Run: 23 Minutes
6RM Squats: 90Kg
6RM Leg Press: 125Kg
After the intense training for the last 4 ½ months he will be taking a rest for 10 days. After 10 days we will be continuing his off season training till his club starts training for next season.
At this point I would like to congratulate Imran for his effort, discipline and determination during the phase of training. I am confident he will remain the No:1 Goal keeper in Maldives through out his career.
More to come from him …
