There’s all kinds of injuries you can suffer as an athlete.
There are ACL tears, neck injuries, back injuries. You name it, an athlete has suffered it.
Although in the Olympics, this one might be new. Finland cross country skier Remi Lindholm suffered from a frozen penis.
Yes, a frozen penis.
“You can guess which body part was a little bit frozen when I finished (the men’s Olympic 50km race) … it was one of the worst competitions I’ve been in. It was just about battling through,” he told Finnish media.
Lindholm apparently had to use an ice pack to treat his frozen penis, which made the pain unbearable once his body started to warm up.
