Gymnast Samir Ait Said’s leg snapped as he tried to complete his vault during team preliminaries in Rio Olympics 2016 on Saturday , with the sound of the injury echoing through the stadium.
As he crumpled to the floor Samir writhed in pain while medical officials tended to him in front of a shaken crowd. After a delay of several minutes, he was finally wheeled out and raised one arm to accept the loud ovation he received from the crowd.
But just minutes later the athlete was in even more excruciating pain after medical staff attempting to bundle him into a waiting ambulance dropped the lower end of the stretcher.
