Rebecca Zhu Injured in TVB Anniversary Rehearsal
In the annual TVB Anniversary Gala, artists often perform dangerous stunts to thrill viewers. With the chance to shine in front of TVB executives, many of them practice hard and even risk chances of injury.
In this year’s TVB Anniversary Gala, Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗), who had trained as a professional ballet dancer, attempted a straddle split while hanging upside down on a rope web. Unfortunately, the move proved to be too demanding for her, and while practicing the move yesterday, Rebecca sustained a back injury.
After the injury, Rebecca was accompanied by security guards to the TVB studio nursing room for medical attention. A medicated pain patch was applied on her lower back, but Rebecca continued to feel sharp pains in her lower back, which may have resulted from abrasions between joints due to strenuous practice. In fact she said that it was painful just to stand up, and suspects the injury might be more serious than it seems to be.
Originally, Rebecca was asked to perform a highly flexible gymnastic move for the “Goddesses Love the Web” segment at the Anniversary Gala, but she will now attempt an easier move for the show. Rebecca felt that her hard work during practice was wasted.
