Always a good thing to pay attention when at a track meet. Especially when you are an official.

Inquiring minds want to know...

Was it thrown by a jihadist?

Yeesh! I thought this was going to be another picture of Helen Thomas, but that javelin in the foot picture is bad enough.

I think that they should add a foot to the distance that the javelin was actually thrown!

How you say 'move' in her language?

Or 'look out'?

Good thing that didn't happen in the US. It would be an OSHA violation and somebody would have to do a lot of paperwork.

Is she OK?

We never got one of those accidents when I was on the HS track team, but there were javelins and discuses, disci, whatever flying in all random directions. The javelin chuckers had that smirk on their faces all the time like 'I can put this through your neck from across the football field.'

Someone at my high school impaled himself with one. He tried to stop a run away discus with the javelin and he tripped. Miraculously it missed all of his vital organs.
