Gymnast Samir Ait Said Shares Update After Horrific Rio Olympics Injury

French Gymnast Samir Ait Said is giving an update on his condition after his horrifying accident at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics on Saturday (August 6) at the Rio Olympic Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“I’m behind all my pals,” the 26-year-old athlete said in a video (in French) on Facebook. “They managed to keep their act together after my fall. That must have been really difficult. They were real warriors. So come on boys, be strong, I’m with you.”

“Believe me, the Tokyo 2020 adventure is still alive,” he added. “As soon as I’m recovered, believe me, we’ll go back to training and we’ll go after those Olympics.”

Samir underwent surgery for a fracture in the tibia and fibula. We’re wishing him a speedy recovery!
