There’s a fine line between being tough and being stupid and this guy definitely stumbled into the stupid territory. You can hear his knee snap at the 0:40 mark. His opponent gives him that ‘are you ok’ glance and he pretends he is okay and continues with the match. At the end of the match his opponent puts him in a deep toe hold and he still refuses to tap, although he groans loudly in pain. The refereee stops it and he can barely stand up. And all for what? A cheap, shiny medal? Dude is not going to be training for at least a couple months. Tap, learn from it and train harder.
For anyone with knee problems, this is one of the best knee braces out there
