This..is a new one.
Remi Lindholm has revealed the “unbearable” pain he endured at the Winter Olympics after suffering what is being reported as a “frozen penis”. The course was also reduced to 30 kilometres instead of the usual 50, but competitors still suffered in the conditions.
Lindholm’s thin ski suit and under-layers did little to protect him from succumbing to the elements, resulting in a “frozen penis” by race’s end.
“You can guess which body part was a little bit frozen when I finished,” he told Finnish media.
“It was one of the worst competitions I’ve been in. It was just about battling through.”
The 24-year-old said he used a heat pack to warm up the area after he finished the race in 28th place in just under an hour and 16 minutes in his first Olympic Games.
“When the body parts started to warm up after the finish, the pain was unbearable,” he added. He also said at the Ruka World Cup in November that he’d suffered a frozen “saint”.
“It was [worse this time]. Pretty unbearable pain,” he said.
