    Do the maths.

    I worry about getting hurt every time I compete in an Olympic event. Cycling is probably the worst because of splinters from the floor. The shark attacks inherent in the 100m freestyle are a close second. Elbow dislocations (didn't watch the video, I assume this is what it is) are third. Heavy metal poisoning is also a risk as they are trying to save money next year by issuing fake medals (of which I plan to win many).

    The weightlifting incidenct was a freak occurence. Statistically speaking weightlifting has low rates of injury, and most injuries are down to poor technique.
