I know I said the contest would end on Tuesday, but the entries have tapered off, and frankly, I just can’t look at any more of these photos. Props to all the crossfitters who showed up the climbers with their godawful wounds. Be sure to check out Katie Boué’s review roundup of climber’s skin care products at Themorningfresh.com.
The Sportiva hat and best story/funniest picture award goes to Jeff Aslen for attempting to heal his kipping pullup-induced flapper with bacon:
And the winner of the 5.10 Dome Mid hiking boots for the foulest image is Heidi Henry, for her awful, AWFUL leg flapper. I know it’s not the result of an outdoor-related mishap, but any image that makes me shriek out loud deserves a win. Besides, Heidi could probably use some non-bloodstained footwear.Here’s her submission and my subsequent post on Facebook, along with a link to the image (consider yourself warned).
Submitted by Heidi Henry, aka Banana Buzzbomb of www.bananabuzzbomb.com: I’d love to say that I was attacked by a shark during an open water swim while training. Unfortunately that’s not the case and it happened at work when a 4 ft fluorescent light bulb busted and felt to the ground, catching my leg in the process. Be forewarned, it’s pretty gruesome. Enjoy! (Warning: this image is foul. Foul foul foul.) http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidandheidi/7255207388/in/photostream
