Granma also said Robles' has a 2.5-centimeter sprain in the right femoral central tendon, adding that the rest of tendons and muscles of the back part of the knee are intact, while the right femur's bone marrow is normal.

The medical report quoted by Granma said Robles' treatment will last three weeks before the next medical examination.

Robles won the qualification and semifinal competitions, but he couldn't end his performance during the final competition, which he had to abandon shortly after it began.
