Finnish skier Remi Lindholm has won sympathy from men around the world, after suffering a frozen penis in brutally cold conditions at the Winter Olympics.

Despite fears of freezing conditions in Zhangjiakou, China, the 50km cross-country event went ahead, with Lindholm revealing the aftermath after the race.

While the race was delayed an hour and shortened by 20 kilometers in an attempt to avoid the worst weather conditions, it wasn’t enough for the 24-year-old to avoid one of the worst injuries imaginable.

“You can guess what was frozen when I crossed the finish line,” Lindholm told the Finnish outlet. Iltalehti.

“I stuffed a heating pad on it. It helped me. It took maybe 15 minutes.

“When the body parts started to heat up after the finish, the pain was unbearable.”

For aerodynamic and speed reasons, skiers wear only thin, tight-fitting clothing and base layers, which offer little protection against the cold.

Impressively, Lindholm was still able to finish 28th despite the frozen appendix, finishing with a time of 1:15:55.6; Russia’s Alexander Bolshunov won the gold medal with a time of 1:11:32.7.

This is apparently the second time Lindholm has suffered a frozen penis while racing, following an event in Finland last year.

Not all of the competitors seemed to have a problem with the conditions: British skier Andrew Musgrave, who finished 12th, was scathing about the decision to shorten the race, describing the decision as a “fucking joke!”

“The FIS has just shortened the Olympic 50km to 28km because it’s a bit cold and windy. I don’t think it will make it any warmer or less windy,” Musgrave tweeted.

“What a fucking joke! »

While he appears to have avoided frostbite, which may have required amputation; Lindholm thinks there will be worrying ramifications from the injury.

Asked by Iltalehti if he believes he will be able to have children, he replied bluntly, “No, I don’t think so.”
