In the latest in a long line of Olympic-torch mishaps this year, former Russian bobsledder Pyotr Markachuk accidentally lit himself on fire during his leg as torch-bearer. Fortunately, Markachuk made it through unscathed and finished his portion of the relay.

Thanks to Business Insider for the find.
