did you read about the crossfit athlete who is now paralyzed from the waist down? check it out:

http://www.buzzfeed.com/mackenziekruvant/crossfit-athlete-paralyzed-after-suffering-severed-spine-in

CrossFit athlete Kevin Ogar was paralyzed from the waist down after severing his spinal cord in the middle of a competition last Sunday in California.

Ogar was competing at the OC Throwdown event in Southern California on Jan. 12 when his lift went awry. From Texas-based The Fittest Games:

What happened is as simple as it is tragic. A missed snatch at the 2014 OC Throwdown came down on his back, severing his spinal cord and leaving him paralyzed from the T-11 vertebra down. I've seen several other athletes drop bars on their backs in training – I've dropped a bar on my back in training – but fortunately never with this result…

Ogar, who has been involved with CrossFit for "2-4 years," had no health insurance, but a fund has been created to pay for his medical costs.

The OC Throwdown website released a statement regarding liability and the medical response to Ogar's injury, clarifying what happened after the video stops. A portion:

The OCT procured the proper liability insurance which is mandatory for this type of event. We had all necessary state, county and engineering licenses in place. The OCT also had a full medical team on-site, all weekend. Within seconds of the injury there was a medical team by Kevin's side and the paramedics arrived within minutes.

yeah that's crazy...Certain sports like dead lifts usually takes years of training and gradually go up in the amount of weights lifted. But it seems that these amateurs are going into this with very little experience.

injuries happen in a lot of sports...i just think people are too impatient to develop skills in the manner they should

but his was probably a freak accident
