SKI jumper Piotr Zyla was left unconscious and covered in blood after a nasty fall on the slopes.
The 32-year-old, who competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, left spectators in shock at the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup in Poland.
Zyla lost his balance after he attempted a jump during the first series of the competition.
The Polish competitor crashed to the ground before he skidded across the snow at high speed.
Medics rushed to his side armed with a stretcher as the horrified spectators looked away in disbelief.
His face was covered in blood and reports claim he lost consciousness for a moment.
But the 2017 World Championships bronze medal winner managed to walk away from the scene without the assistance of the medics.
Sport.PL report that he suffered a split eyebrow and lip.
The 32-year-old refused to go in the ambulance to be checked over, according to PZN sports director Adam Malysz.
