RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – AUGUST 06: Samir Ait Said of France receives medical attention after breaking his leg while competing on the vault during the Artistic Gymnastics Men’s Team qualification on Day 1 of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at Rio Olympic Arena on August 6, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

French gymnast Samir Ait Said broke his leg while performing in the vault at the Rio Olympics. The 26 year old athlete landed badly on his left leg as it folded beneath him during the men’s qualification event.

Said, who won gold on the rings at the 2013 European Championships, was taken off on a stretcher still composed, waving as he departed, acknowledging the cheering crowd.

French team leader Corrine Moustard-Callon said:

We don’t know what happened, except it was his tibia. He is in the hospital with a doctor now. We will do more exams to see if it is just the bone. It is very difficult for the team. He was one of the friendliest on the team which is very difficult – he came to win a medal and gave everything, 200%.

    Yikes!!! I wish I hadn’t watched this video. I think the image is forever etched in my memory and I can’t erase it. I initially thought the video was just gonna the athlete being carried out. Bellanaija please give your readers a heads up next time u have a graphic image. I was looking forward to watching the team U.S women gymnastics later today, now I’m a little uneasy about watching gymnastics.
