Javelin impales umpire’s arm


23

The 1994 Bislett Games in Oslo became a harrowing chapter in the athletic career of Finnish javelin thrower Juha Laukkanen. Renowned for his exceptional skills, Laukkanen’s throws were marked by shocking incidents, one of which occurred when his javelin impaled senior umpire Håkon Lund’s arm. Despite the shocking turn of events, Lund miraculously escaped serious injury, leaving spectators and the sports community astonished.

This incident wasn’t an isolated case in Laukkanen’s career. On May 23, 1998, at an athletics festival in Riederich, Germany, another javelin throw struck judge Engelbert Perchthaler in the abdomen. Blinded by the sun, Perchthaler reflexively pulled out the javelin, exacerbating internal bleeding. Airlifted to the hospital, he underwent emergency surgery, narrowly escaping life-threatening danger, but now lives with a 25cm scar on his abdomen. These incidents sparked discussions on safety measures in athletic events, raising concerns about the well-being of all participants, including officials.
