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. (by Randall J.
