Remi Lindholm a Finnish skier who was competing in a men’s cross-country skiing race at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing was afflicted by an uncomfortable side effect from the freezing cold temperature.
Remi Lindholm from Finland competed during the Men’s Cross-Country skiing which was shortened from 50 to 30km due to the harrowing weather conditions
The harsh temperatures combined with ferocious winds caused his penis to freeze.
“You can guess which body part was a little bit frozen when I finished … it was one of the worst competitions I’ve been in,” Lindholm said to Finnish media.
“It was just about battling through.”
Lindholm said his appendage needed a heat pack after the 50km race (which was shortened due to the brutal conditions to 30km) to thaw his manhood out.
“When the body parts started to warm up after the finish, the pain was unbearable,” he said.
This was not the first time that Lindholm’s penis had become frozen. According to Reuters it also happened in Ruka, Finland last year, Lindholm said.
Despite the awkward injury, Lindholm finished the race and came in 28th out of 60 competitors.
