What a gamer!
A newspaper photographer at a high school state track championships in Provo was speared through the leg by a javelin.
Holy crap. The guy wasn't hurt too badly, as the javelin missed anything vital. Not only that, he snapped a picture of his own leg (see it below, and no, it's not that bad, but it is freaky). The guy was in an off-limits section, so it's his own damned fault!
There are a couple of funny things about this. The track coach had the line of the day: "Good thing we brought a second javelin." That's gold! The photographer, an ex-Marine who spent six months in Afghanistan, also had a zinger: "They don't have javelins in Afghanistan. That's where I'm lucky." Oh, it's all fun and games when someone gets speared through the leg with a javelin! But what about the kid who threw it? Well, after freaking out for a minute, he won the state title. Man, everyone is a gamer in this story!
I found the photograph here. Check it out:
