javelin failure part 2

On Friday the 13th July 2007, during the IAAF Golden League at Rome's Olimpico Stadium, Salim Sdiri was hit in the upper body by a stray javelin thrown by Tero Pitkämäki. Sdiri was rushed to a local Rome hospital with non life-threatening injuries, however, the wound was more serious than the initial reports suggested and Sdiri had to return to hospital. Sdiri said: "The javelin touched the right kidney and there is a slight tear at the top of the kidney....the liver was also touched leaving a hole in it. The javelin penetrated over ten centimetres and not four as we initially thought." He returned to competition in early 2008.
