You have probably seen the posts going around about Sousuke having a swimming injury. This is my opinion as to what happened, but I’d like to add some clarification as to why it might effect his swimming.
Swimmers shoulder is common, simply strain of the muscles/tendons in the shoulder.
However, the more severe injury resulting is a TORN rotator cuff, which is a rip in the tendon that creates motion of the shoulder.
So, if we work with the idea that Sousuke has a torn rotator cuff, as an active person, he would need to have surgery to repair the issue.
This is all well and good, however, surgery comes with side-effects. Even after surgery, there is a large rehabilitation time, and the presence of scar tissue on the tendon, which may PERMENANTLY decrease range of motion. This could also mean a perminant dent in Sousuke’s swimming career.
Now, there’s been some talk about Sousuke doing rehabilitation exercises. However, if you notice, he is using his right shoulder. Not his left.
The same exercises to rehabilitate a torn rotator cuff are the same recommended for PREVENTING torn rotator cuffs, which could mean he’s trying to protect his other shoulder from the same injury that plauged his other one.
He may not be exercising the other because the injury may be so severe that exercise is painful/will make the tear worse.
THIS ALL BEING SAID:
If Sousuke’s injury is essentially irreparable, it would make sense for him to be sad about having been scouted.
Even sadder to have the chance to swim with Rin taken away from him.
And even sadder when Rin thinks he’s not giving his all on purpose.
…especially when swimming with him clearly meant so much to him as a child, even if he never acknowledged Rin’s passion for relays.
It makes sense for him to move 9 hours away from a potentially better school to swim in his home town with his old friend.
It makes sense for him to despise the person who Rin stopped swimming with him for.
The same person who he thinks jeopardised Rin’s dream, and the same person who may get to swim with Rin for a very long time in the future.
It makes sense that he is so miserable after the relay.
It make sense that after having waited so long to do it, he understands the way Nitori is feeling, and that’s why he’s able to give heartfelt advice, because it may very well be his last summer to swim with Rin.
It makes sense that he looks miserable every time he thinks Rin can’t see.
It makes sense that the relay didn’t show him the light that the others see.
Because the pain in his shoulder may serve as a reminder that he may not have very long left to swim with Rin, and he may never be able to live his own dream. Even if he wants to.
So in short, please be kind to Sousuke. He is not a jerk, he is not a dick, he is not an ass-hole. He is a very kind person who is probably currently trying to figure out what the hell to do with the rest of his life now that his previous dream is in the gutter, and how to maintain a friendship with someone whose entire life revolves around swimming. Please be kind to him.
