This one isn’t for the faint of heart. French gymnast Samir Ait Said was competing at the Rio Olympics on Saturday. He was doing the vault during the team preliminaries when he landed awkwardly and broke his left leg. At best, this injury can be described as horrible. At worst, well, we’ll let Nancy Armour of USA Today Sports sum it up.
This is, in all seriousness, one of the worst leg injuries that we have ever seen. If you’re brave enough to look at the pictures, head to the next page, but be warned: these are definitely not for those who consider themselves squeamish.
