    How can that reporter say that the kid that got the javelin in the eye did not sustain any major injuries? Clearly by the video he lost the use of that eye. I`d say that was pretty major.

    I would`ve taken a picture of it. I mean, he was supposed to cover the news in pictures, and him getting hit in the leg with a javelin was the news. Maybe I`m just hanging around one too many photojournalists-to-be.

    It wasn`t even a big stab. I mean, it only pierced the skin, he`ll be okay.

    Kinda to be expected... I mean these things all originated from the olympic games in ancient greece where the hammer, discus, javelin, shot... were all intended as weapons.

    Stand in the way, that`s your fault... Feel sorry for the kid that tripped though

    I suggest you grab a hammer and hit yourself repeatedly in the head until you get my point.

    Thats why at school we were taught to walk slowly towards the javelin and pick it up it our hands over it O_o. That injury was negligence on the teachers part or maybe it was the country.
    Im sure there`s another one which is much worse somewhere on the internet i`ve seen it but where!

    That`s not nearly as bad as what happened last summer when professional javelin thrower Tero Pitkämäki hit Salim Sdiri in the back from 80 meters.

    That`s the Tero throw, at the end you get a sort of close up. No blood, but just imagining it happening send shivers down my spine
