The Achilles tendon is the tendinous extension of three muscles in the lower leg: gastrocnemius, soleus, and plantaris, inserting into the calcaneus (heel bone). The tendon passes behind the ankle and is the thickest and strongest tendon in the body. It is about 15cm long, and begins near the middle of the leg.
