This guy is lucky he wasn't severely injured.

Gophers All-American Jalon Stephons was practicing his high bar routine when the bar dislodged and sent him flying at the peak of his routine. The fall looks scary but Stephons walked away uninjured.

Olympic gold-medal winner Simone Biles saw the video and tweeted that she would quit if that happened to her.
