2008 Summer Olympic decathlon champion Bryan Clay‘s daughter had a loose tooth. To help her get rid of it, he tied a string around it and to a javelin he threw.
Bryan Clay is from Austin, Texas and is now retired, but in the 2008 Beijing Olympics he won the gold medal, and in the previous 2004 Athens Olympics he won silver. In 2012, Clay returned to the Olympic Trials in hopes of going to the Olympics a third time, but did not qualify.
