26 year old French Gymnast Samir Ait Said who suffered a gruesome and horrific leg break after jumping awkwardly during his team's preliminaries at Rio 2016 READ HERE over the weekend has said his target is to be fit for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics tournament so he can fulfil his dream of winning an Olympic gold medal.


Less than 24 hours after the gruesome events of the Olympic Arena, Said posted a video from his hospital bed on Facebook, thanking all those who had sent in messages of support, and claiming that he'll be returning to gymnastics.

The Frenchman, who underwent surgery last night, was quick to praise his teammates, several of whom successfully qualified for Monday's final despite witnessing the incident.
"The operation went very well, I should be back on my feet in a short time. I will go back to the training camp to encourage my friends because the competition is not over," he said. We must all get behind the guys in general contest and the men's gymnastic horse event. The team managed to mobilise after my fall and that cannot have been easy. They are real fighters. 
"Well guys, I say 's***!' Be strong, be good, I am with you, and for all of you I sent you a big embrace, and believe me my dream of making Tokyo 2020 is still on! As soon as I'm back on my feet, believe me, I will be training and looking for Olympic gold."'

This is not the first time Said is sustaining a terrible injury during a major tournament, he sustained a triple fracture to his right tibia at the 2012 European Championships.
