Ouch-Poor Samir ait Said, French Gymnast

Danny Pinheiro Rodrigues hid his eyes in sorrow
French gymnast Samir aït Saïd, covered previously in this spot (see keywords at the blog) snapped and broke his leg during a horrifying accident at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday, August 6.  

While landing a Vault, his leg snapped at remained at an unnatural angle.  It is unclear whether the surface contributed to the incident.  While being carried to the ambulance, the many first responders dropped the stretcher.  He now appears to be resting comfortably at the hospital, before transport back to France.

We'll keep him in our best thoughts...
