  1. J Bloggs says:

    1) He was hit in the back by a stray javelin (the thrower lost his footing just as he released the Javelin), and had to be rushed to hospital. IT was later found the javelin had peirced his liver and caused Kidney damage as well. Sadly, the incident cost Sdiri his chance at the olympics, as he was ruled out of the 2008 games, and was unable to qualify for 2012.

    2) He dislocated his jaw while yelling at his defenders.

    3) They all injured themsleves reaching for the TV remote control (as did striker Robbie Keane)

    4) 1934 US Open at Merion. Final round 11th hole and leading the tournament. He drove onto the fairway but misjudged his second shot and it headed for the creek in front of the green. The ball hit a stone and bounced up on to the green. In jubilation he tossed his club in the air and it came down and hit him on the head, stunning him. He recovered and parred the hole but his game took a turn for the worse and he lost by 2 strokes. (c&p Teletext answer here)
