Problems with his elbow meant he did not compete from the early part of 2019 until September of the same year. (zurnal24.si, 14 Apr 2019)

He had elbow surgery in November 2013. Six weeks later he developed an infection, which he continues to control through medication. Although the injury means he is in pain while he competes, curing the problem would need 18 months of rehabilitation and likely mean the end of his career.
