If you want to see something pretty freakin’ cool, if not disgusting and cringe-worthy, here is a video of Georgi Kirilov Georgiev of Bulgaria suffering a leg-break even worse than the one that ended Joe Theismann’s football career. In this video Georgiev is competing in the 100 meter sprint at the European Championships in Helsinki, when he slows up to a limp before his right leg dramatically gives way, ending his race.
Thankfully, the result of this injury was “only” a broken leg and a dislocated knee. It could have been much worse. Unsurprisingly, Georgiev did not qualify for the final.
