I don’t think it’s any secret that this Winter Games in Beijing has been less than thrilling for the Olympic athletes.
There’s no fans or family in attendance, the COVID protocols are STRICT, the accommodations are shit, and did you see the big air course? It’s next to damn steel mill…
It doesn’t even snow there… how China got to host the Winter Olympics in Beijing is beyond me. And when it did snow (unexpectedly), they didn’t know what to do to manage the conditions. Can you believe that? Who would’ve thought snow at the Winter Olympics would be a problem…
The Russians are doping again, the NHL still won’t let its players play, and ratings have been abysmal.
But one Finnish skier… it gets even worse.
According to Reuters, cross country skier Remi Lindholm was suffering from a “frozen penis” at the start of the 50k men’s mass start race at the Beijing Games… and they even shortened the race to 30km because of the bitter cold.
Lindholm reportedly needed a heat pack by the end of the race to warm up the icicle in his shorts.
“You can guess which body part was a little bit frozen when I finished. It was one of the worst competitions I’ve been in. It was just about battling through.”
Unfortunately, those aerodynamic ski suits don’t offer much warmth, and in those temperatures, frostbite can be an issue.
“When the body parts started to warm up after the finish, the pain was unbearable.”
Believe it or not though, this is the second time a frozen penis incident occurred at a cross country skiing event.
In a 2021 World Cup event in Ruka, Finland, it was so cold that Team Norway refused to race, and a trio of Russians swept the podium. However, the race left a number of skiers with frostbite, including one lad with a “frozen penis.”
Man, I guess we don’t give cross country skiers enough credit… ain’t no way I’m doing that. Not a chance…
Remi also finished 28th in the race… not exactly something worth losing your manhood over.
