The Calamity of the Olympics

You may be one of those people who prefer the Winter Games to the Summer Games because the skating, sledding, and skiing all come with a risk of a slip and fall. You may have even avoided all the sunshine and brotherhood of the Olympics television coverage. For you, The Guardian has a gallery of images featuring the slips, falls, and screwups of the London Olympics. Warning: contains faceplants, falling horses, and one bloody face.

I was watching the weightlifting live (photo 6) and that really could have broken his back/neck or even killed him. It put him out of the competition, unsurprisingly. Nasty.
