Worst Sporting Injuries

#3
I don't have a piccie but the worst I saw was a Judge at an athletics meet taking a Javelin from behind in the shoulder, as it was throw the victim decided to jog across the field, he survived but there was quite a bit of blood. IIRC the thrower had to throw again

I remember watching it live, was a bit odd to say the least.

The worst one I've seen is the ice hockey player who gets his throat slit, nasty. I think there was another incident of this recently.
In fact there is a link to one of them from the javelin youtube clip.

Not worst but certainly impressive. Paul Laus Vs Craig Berube, NHL. No pic, just video.

Lovely uppercut.

Ice Hockey produces some spectacular injuries.

Richard Zednik who plays for the Florida Panthers lost five pints of blood when he was slashed in the throat by a teammates skate.

Ouch!

Impressive - after all the Roman and Greek soldiers had to train for years to hit someone with their javelins.

BTW, did they measure it to where it hit the judge or the point where the judge stopped jumping about and saying "owww! feck, that hurts!"

:lol:

I thought Ayrton Sennas injury was a pretty bad one.


Marc Vivien Foe also looks a bit poorly here

Idiot boy skydiver hooked it in and crocked himself. When we got to him his foot was around six inches below his knee with his leg still pretty much upright due to the shin bones penetrating his ankle and foot and being embedded in the ground. Fortunately(?) the rest of him was also pretty broken so he was asleep when the ambulance crews pulled the bones and leg out of the ground and loaded him onto a stretcher.
