It Happens: French Olympian Soils Shorts During Race

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 9.27.10 AMThis guy REALLY wanted to win.

The Olympic 50k Walk is still in progress, currently approaching the three hour mark. Around 50 minutes into the race, a brown liquid was seen running down the back of French walker Yohann Diniz’s right leg.

Yeah…he did it.
