Runner Loses A Race Thanks To A Flying Elastic Strap (Video)
Posted by Steve on February 13 2017
We don't cover too many Irish college track and field competitions on the show, but this one needs to be covered!

Aengus Meldon was leading the men's 800 meter race going into the last turn.  Victory was all but his!  But then, an elastic strap came flying out of nowhere and wrapped itself around Meldon's legs.  It's unclear in the video, but it appears as though he finished the race second or third.  So what the hell happened?

If you watch the video closely, you'll see that as Meldon was rounding the final turn, a nearby pole vaulter was practicing and hit the elastic practice cross bar.  This caused the elastic strap to shoot on to the track, wrapping itself around Meldon.  What are the odds?

Check out the video below!
