    Top 5 most bizarre sports injuries


    As many avid sports fans will know injuries are a common occurrence at professional level, but they can also affect us amateurs too.

    If you are involved in a sports injury that wasn’t your fault you may be entitled to sports injury compensation.

    However, sports injuries aren’t always straightforward and can happen in a number of weird ways. Here are five bizarre sporting injuries from around the world of sport:

    Thomas Levet (Golf)

    The former Ryder Cup player and Open Championship runner-up managed to break his shin jumping into the lake that surrounds the 18th at Le Golf National in 2011.

    The injury forced him to withdraw from the Open a little over two weeks later.

    Steve Morrow (Football)

    The Northern Irish centre-half was the hero in Arsenal’s League Cup triumph in April 1993, scoring in a 2-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

    However, the defender was subsequently ruled out of the FA Cup final a month later with a broken collarbone after Tony Adams dropped him while celebrating his cup winning effort.

    Mikhail Youzhny (Tennis)

    For this injury the Russian has no one to blame except himself.

    Having failed to convert a break point against Nicolas Almago in 2008, the fiery Youzhny took his frustration out on his racket and his head.

    The Russian was left with a bloodied forehead after smashing the racket against it, but it didn’t do his chances any harm as he went on to win the match.

    Mark Boucher (Cricket)

    The South African wicketkeeper was forced to retire from the sport after being injured in a freak accident in a tour game against Somerset in 2012.

    Boucher was struck in the eye by a flying bail, which threatened to blind him, resulting in two operations to save the affected eye.

    Jamie Ainscough (Rugby League)

    Wigan’s Aussie winger was ruled out of a Warriors match in 2002, when a tooth was discovered embedded in his arm following an x-ray, after the arm had become infected.

    The tooth, which belonged to St. Helens’ Martin Gleeson, was removed following an operation.
