Cyclist Aziz Awang Wins With Huge Splinter Though His Leg: Photos
(And you thought cycling was just going round and round and round. This is pedal-powered Formula one, folks. Buy your Olympic tickets now!)
The yet more incredible thing is that Awang finished third – good enough to earn him the Track Cycling World Cup title.
Says Edward Dawkins, who was also involved in the crash:
“All I saw was the bit sticking out of the top and I thought they might as well just pull it out. Then I realised it went all the way through. You don’t see that very often.”
You just have to get lucky…
