Somehow, a 9 inch spike of the wooden track had become dislodged under the impacts of the crashing bicycles and was subsequently driven through Awang's left calf.
From the above video, however, we know that the piece of wood was successfully removed and that Awang is on the road to recovery now. When winner Chris Hoy was asked his impression of the incident, he said:
"Awang is always in there with the rough and tumble so it's almost inevitable it's going to happen to him at some point."
The worlds largest splinter: An inevitable result of being in the rough and tumble.
Now that is a 'pocket-rocket'.
