It’s hard to tell which wipeouts are worse: Real athletes nearly drowning at the mercy of the wild sea, or wannabe athletes bouncing around an obstacle course over water on my favorite show, Wipeout.
Both kinds of people seem equally daring. Here, in no particular order, I’ve compiled a list of the worst wipeouts, from real life and TV.
Mark Healey’s Puerto Tumble.
Donut Darren
Alain Riou in Tahiti.
Danny Fuller takes one on the head (literally).
Nicolo’s beating of the year…the century…of all time.
C’mon. How could we leave this one out?
