Filipino Olympian Michael Martinez endured a leg injury to place seventh in the Golden Spin of Zagreb skating tilt on Friday in Croatia.
The 19-year-old skater ranked seventh in the short program with 65.66 points, but his left leg had to be treated before the free skate.
He managed an eighth place finish with 137.16 points despite his hurting leg, good enough to retain seventh place overall with 202.82 points.
“Thank you very much to the Croatian Federation’s doctor for treating my lower leg injury this afternoon,” he said. “Otherwise, I would have not survived the freeskate tonight.”
“Although it was still painful on every push and landings, but the treatment lessened the pain and swelling and I was able to finish my program.”
Kazakhstan’s Denis Ten, the 2014 Winter Olympics bronze medalist, bagged the championship with 276.39 points on a top performance in the free skate and the short program.
