Photographers captured a remarkable set of images of French gymnast Samir Aït Saïd, who suffered a horrific leg injury after a vault and immediately proved he is a hell of a lot tougher than you are. After initially grimacing as if he’d stubbed a toe badly, his expression changed to the exasperated one of someone who can’t get a bartender’s attention. The photo immediately below is by Alex Livesey of Getty; the others are by Scott Halleran.
