Track Splinter

Seen some bad road rash, had some myself, split my knee cap open last year in a Cross race, but nothing like this. That’s more like an arrow than a splinter. Malaysia’s Azizulhasni Awang crashed in the Men’s Keirin Final during the Track Cycling World Cup at the National Cycling Centre, Manchester, England. Remarkably, he got up, stumbled across the line with a giant splinter in his leg, and won bronze!
