The 2012 Olympics have produced some beautiful, inspiring moments. But the Games have also produced plenty of really, really painful ones.

Like getting punched in the nuts, for example.

Or dropping 432 lbs. onto your head.

Or getting kneed in the face by a soccer player running full speed.

We’ve compiled the five most painful moments so far in the gallery above. Better yet, they’re in handy GIF form, so you can watch, cringe and LOL over and over again.

And, if you’ve still got an appetite for athletics gone bad, check out our gallery of the funniest Olympic fails from this year and years passed.
