Throwing Smoke Flashback - Friday the 13th, July 2007

In case you missed it, French long jumper Salim Sdiri suffered a one-inch wound to his side when he was hit by a javelin during the Golden Gala in Rome on Friday. The incident occurred midway through the evening when Finnish thrower Tero Pitkamaki slipped at the end of his run-up, hurling the javelin out to the left of the landing area and spearing Sdiri in his right side as he crouched in the long jump warm-up section.

Who would have thought a long jumper would have better odds of getting stabbed then an NFL player?
