Bryan Clay is a retired Olympic athlete known best for taking gold in the decathlon in Beijing during the 2008 Summer Olympics. He hasn't thrown a javelin in competition for nearly three years, but it's always a good idea to keep one handy—for any dentistry needs, of course. 

Clay's daughter, Ellie, had a loose tooth that needed to be pulled. Instead of using a string and tying it to the doorknob like boring, regular people, Clay tested his Olympic skills to help his daughter.

Yes, Clay removed the tooth by tying it with floss and attaching it to a javelin.

Warning: There is mild blood in the video.

It worked to perfection, and Ellie wasn't bothered at all. According to Clay, it was her idea.

This method may be catching on with other Olympians as well:
