Something like that happens every games, and it's still the same mixture of slight discomfort and bemusement for me when I watch it. The screams of agony get me much worse then watching it.

I think it's important to point out that this is a real human being suffering a possibly crippling injury, and whose only crime is trying to represent his country by being the best athlete he can be. He didn't somehow 'deserve' to have his olympic dreams and his body shattered in a tragic accident.

It's tragic, not funny and I really don't think it's appropriate to treat this footage as some kind of gag reel.

I'm all for nut shots and harmless slip and fall stuff...I'm not going to say watching someone get hurt can't be funny but you have to realize the difference between an embarrassing moment and a life threatening injury to someone who would be considered a national hero in their home country.

Fucking hell. Poor guy. I've pulled a muscle in my shoulder. I can't begin to imagine how much that hurts. The agony...

If I ever needed to be inspired to train as a paramedic, that has to be the perfect thing for me to witness.

The injury itself looks painful. Having broken and dislocated many bones before (I used to skate. I actually knew the guys in X-Ray and the plaster room by first names, and was in there every few months for 3 years).
However, I find the blocker guys hilarious. Does this make me a bad person?

No. I think they're there so you don't see horrible human tragedies, and to keep a nice, clean happy face on the Olympics. No one wants to see deformed steroid junkies or hear of athlete supermen and women who's heart had exploded.
