German Olympic luger breaks tooth on medal

BERLIN (AFP) – Germany’s silver medallist in the Olympic luge David Moeller took an embarrassing trip to the dentist after breaking his front tooth biting into his prize, mass circulation daily Bild said Thursday.

A sheepish Moeller, 28, explained: “The photographers wanted us to bite into our medals at the presentation ceremony. And a corner of my front tooth broke off.”

“It wasn’t too bad and it didn’t hurt,” added Moeller, saying that it had happened before to him at home.

“But it is annoying when you can’t smile as you normally do. And because I want to have nice pictures and happy memories of my Olympic Games, I went to the dentist to get it repaired,” he said.
