And although Brendan can’t remember actually hitting his head, he admits he is “horrified” that it happened.
What happened to Brendan Cole that meant he went to hospital?
Brendan indicated to the Daily Star he had to go to A&E after his mind wandered briefly as he was training on the ice.
He recalled: “I was on the ice and I took my mind off what I was doing for a second.
“I turned – and that’s the last thing I remember.”
Brendan also noted his fall resulted in a concussion which “horrified” him when he realised what had occurred.
How Brendan’s injury has affected him
Brendan admits he has come to realise he must be “100% focused” whenever he is on the rink.
It has been a great learning curve.
He continued: “The moment you switch off, you make silly mistakes. It has been a great learning curve.”
Brendan also explained other injuries can happen during training, including bruising and bleeding from skates hitting shins.
