Runner Loses Race Because of Elastic Strap

Imagine being in 1st place, then out of the blue, being attacked just before finishing by an inanimate object and losing.  That really happened to some poor guy!

A runner at a college track meet was in first place the other day.  Then right before the finish line, an elastic strap snapped off a piece of pole-vaulting equipment . . . flew onto the track . . . got wrapped around his legs . . . and he lost!

It was a qualifying race, and he would have missed the finals because of it.  But the officials decided to let him in.  

You can't make this stuff up, CHECK IT OUT!
