An industry built on celebratory athleticism, consistently battled internal politics, and a pension for under-the-table gambling would leave one to think that everything is peachy keen. But sports can have very real consequences for those not necessarily looking for trouble.

Despite the severity of his injury Ait Said has been pictured looking in high spirits as he makes his first tentative steps on the road to recovery.”
