|Fur was flying: Dennis Thomas|
Thomas, who took part last February as a native dancer in the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, swung over a pool of water and was attempting to land through a stack of large inner tubes when he booted the dismount, inuring his right leg.
UPDATE: The network says Thomas is doing fine and has already been flown back home to Canada (business class!). He does face further reconstructive surgery to repair tendons in his knee and leg. So far, he's the only Wipeout contestant ever to sustain a serious knee injury on the three rings section of the obstacle course.
