Samir Ait Said Breaks Leg in Scary Rio Olympics Injury (Video)

Samir Ait Said holds his broken leg while laying in agony after a cringe-worthy injury during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics on Saturday (August 6) at the Rio Olympic Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 26-year-old French gymnast was competing on the vault during the Artistic Gymnastics Men’s Team qualification round. On his landing, his leg snapped and he fell to the ground in pain.

The sound of Samir‘s leg snapping is said to have echoed around the arena. As he sunk down to the floor, his foot and the lower half of his leg could be seen flopping to the left.

    Poor guy has some bone density issues. I think he needs to find a different profession. I hope he heals well and will not try this again.

    Ouch! Dam good thing the French have health care coverage! Here if the leg injury didn’t kill him, the hospital bills would.
