This Guy Has Guts

This caught my eye in the Metro this morning.

Cyclist Aziz Awang, of Malaysia, was competing in the men’s keirin event at the track cycling world cup. Near the end of the race three riders, including Awang, were involved in a collision and he ended up with a 25cm long splinter piercing right through his calf. (There’s a picture at the above link).

Then he got back on his bike and finished the race.

Chris Hoy won the race but Awang came in third, then was carried off by medics. Doctors had to operate to get the splinter out of him.

That’s what I call impressive!

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.
