Matthias Steiner Undergoes Surgery

German superstar weightlifter Matthias Steiner has just undergone surgery.

"An inguinal hernia was ascertained on Monday," German weightlifting coach Michael Vater explained to IronMind®, so on Tuesday the Olympic gold medalist underwent surgery. Vater said that there was no possibility of delaying the surgery because Steiner needs to focus on being in top condition for the World Weightlifitng Championships later this year.

Matthias Steiner is a member of the German weightlifting delegation that will be coming the Arnold Sports Festival for the IronMind® Invitational, and while everyone is sorely disappointed that Steiner will not be able to lift in Columbus, the good news is that the procedure went well and Steiner will still be joining his teammates at the Arnold Sports Festival.
