OT: Worst Sports Injury Video

Submitted by Ron_Lippitt on June 18th, 2012 at 1:54 PM

Karsch and Anderson (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit) had a discussion last hour about the worst sports injury seen on video.  Of course, the Theismann leg comes immediately to mind, but after viewing the following beach soccer video, you might agree that this is worse...

WARNING:  This is not for the weak.  Scroll down past the Theismann and Malarchuk injuries.

I'm a fan of the TDF. In the 2003 tour, there was a fast descent on one of the mountain stages. The pavement was extremely hot and Joseba Beloki hit a soft patch and crashed, slammed to the pavement and broke his femur. You may remember that Lance Armstrong avoided the crash but went off the road, fortunately into a grass field and not off the side of the mountain.

I can't find any video of it, but Garrison Hearst's ankle injury in 1999 versus the Falcons in the playoffs was brutal from what I remember.

This one is not only bad because of the inury, but also because the dude inflicting it was clearly stomping on the victim's leg and then questioned the red card.
