I know this sounds like a joke, but.......Javelin thrower makes near-fatal mistake!


There's video too.....

Javelin Thrower Spears Person with Errant Toss : Finnish thrower Tero Pitkamaki slipped as he was releasing his javelin at an international competition in Rome on Friday, spearing long jumper Salim Sdiri of France in the back (painful video link). Sdiri's kidney and liver were injured by the 10-cm deep wound. "A shocked-looking Pitkamaki held his head in his hands after the incident but took his next throw in the javelin competition."
