Beijing 2022: Musgrave ‘struggles for medals’ in Beijing

Transnational snowboarding can be a brutal sport at the best of times, but at Winter Olympic Games it left one unlucky rider with an “unbearable” injury.

In ice-cold temperatures, athletes go through a long course that often sees them burn more than 1,000 calories per hour.

The men’s 50 km all-around start in Beijing was made even more dangerous by freezing winds sweeping across the track.

Organizers decided to reduce the distance to 30km to reduce the risk of frostbite, although that decision was unpopular with some, including Andrew Musgrave of Team GB.

Sadly for Remi Lindholm, that measure didn’t stop the cold from freezing a particularly sensitive area during the race.

The Finnish skier revealed after the race he had a frozen penis during his 76 minutes on the track.

“Can you guess which body part is a bit frozen when I’m done,” he told the Finnish outlet IL .

“It was one of the worst competitions I’ve ever been in. It’s just to fight through.”

Incredibly, this isn’t the first time he’s suffered such a weird injury – he first ran into a similar problem while racing in Ruka, his hometown, last year.

Previous experience had helped him know what to do to fix the problem when the race was over, but when he applied the heat pack, the pain was worse this time.

“When the parts of the body start to heat up after the end, the pain is unbearable,” he added.

Sadly, Lindholm was unable to win a medal in the event to make up for his upset, finishing 28th and well away from the leaders in the truncated race.

It was won by Russian Olympic Committee athlete Alexander Bolshunov, who won third place in cross-country skiing. gold medal of these Games after dominating the field.

In total, he has won 5 medals in Beijing, adding to the 4 that he brought home from PyeongChang in 2018 to make an impressive personal record of 9.

He won this race by being patient and waiting for the final lap of the 7.1km run to overtake and overtake the rest of the front runners.

ROC teammate Ivan Yakimushkin finished in second place, six seconds behind, just ahead of Simen Hegstad Krueger of Norway, who won bronze.

England’s Andrew Musgrave put in an admirable performance as he finished 12th out of 61 courts, a significant improvement on his 46th place in the classic 15km event.
