In what is best described as a freak accident, a Russian ice worker was hit by a bobsled at the Sanki Sliding Center. Center officials sent an empty forerunning sled to make sure the run was in good condition for the athletes. Three workers were on the track at the time. Two of them noticed the oncoming bobsled and got out of harm’s way. The third suffered two broken legs because of the impact. He was using a motorized air blower and may not have heard the announcement of the oncoming bobsled. The worker had surgery on both legs and is currently in stable condition.

In the last game of 2013, the New York Giants’ Eli Manning sustained a high ankle sprain. He was hit by a defensive on the opposing team and his leg twisted as he fell to the ground. He continued to play in the first half of the game but opted to sit out for the second half. He left the stadium wearing a boot and using crutches.
Football is a dangerous sport and injuries are plentiful. In early November, the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers suffered a collarbone fracture. The collarbone, also known as the clavicle, behaves as a strut for the shoulder that allows the arm to move freely.
