Thankfully very rare but terrible injury. Best wishes go out to the guy and his family.

Awful.I hope he gets better.
That's terrible. My prayers go out to that poor guy - hope he gets better....
Reminds me of that YouTube video where that guy gets his back broken in a BJJ comp - you guys know the one I mean....
I know what we do is a tough sport and injuries can and do occur, but from what I'm aware back/spinal injuries are very rare - these two instances are the only ones I'm aware of...
Once again - my prayers to the poor guy - I really hope he recovers from this....
fuck! hope he gets better
maybe a small donation guys , 10 NZD = £4 ?

Reminds me of Owen Lowery's injury in a Junior Judo competition more than 20 years ago. Got thrown on his head and broke his neck. It is fucking terrifying just thinking about it.
So I don't.
Poor guy. Of course I dunno what exactly caused this accident but while on the topic of neck injuries I am going to say for the record ...
I personally am strongly against neck cranks and get really pissed off when i see folk slamming them on. They arn't in competitions for a reason. Its obviously a tough sport and my feeling is that the application of neck cranks is a totally unnecessary risk.
I really hope Haydn Clasby gets better, whever caused it, thats a really shitty thing to happen.
