Aengus Meldon appeared headed for victory out of the final turn of the 800 meters at the Irish Universities Athletics Association championship. Unfortunately a nearby pole vaulter at that exact moment pulled down an elastic crossbar used for training. Here’s the video of what happened next.
The announcer labeled it a “Spiderman attack,” solidifying the indisputable truth that we should always watch Irish Universities Athletics Association events and enshrine their announcers in the Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
It’s that time of year again for the London Pantomime Horse Race and this year’s contestants have been training hard.
Ikuo Omichi was very happy with his first place finish in the Mongolian Steppes 100K ultramarathon. But it wasn’t until he saw his prize that he realized how special a victory it was.
He named the camel “Go” and took it for a victory lap around the finish area.
Unfortunately, Japan’s laws don’t allow for the import of livestock, so Go had to be left with local nomads.
It’s a shame, because riding that thing to work every morning would be awesome.
I like running.
I like zombies.
I like soup.
I never thought of combining the three. But some evil genius in Sweet Home, Oregon came up with the Zombie Zoup Run.
You get a two-mile trail run while pursued by zombies, followed by free admission to the Great Community Soup Event, which features 10 varieties of warm homemade soup + rolls. All you can eat!
Despite the name of the race, the soups are designed for consumption by the living. Zombies will have to bring their own brand of soup.
