French Gymnast Suffers Horrific Leg Fracture – Day 1 of the 2016 Rio Olympics was tainted after French gymast Samir Ait Said suffered a terrible injury.
The 26-year old fractured his leg while performing at the vault in the men’s gymnastic event, and had to be taken off on a stretcher.
“We don’t know what happened, except it was his tibia,” French team leader Corrine Moustard-Callon. She added: “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.”
