Oouch! Female Olympic Gymnast Falls On Her Neck (photos)

Young and energetic Ellie Downie, of Team Great Britain, suffered a painful fall on her neck - before returning to the Olympic arena to complete her show for the competition.

17-year-old Downie, competing in her first Olympic Games, had already safely negotiated her way through the bars and beam, was beginning the floor potion of the competition when she suffered her freak accident.  She said, "I heard a crunch and they put me in a wheelchair!"
