You're an olympic sprinter & as you approach the finish line destined for gold, what could distract you that would scupper your bid for glory?

Asked by ucme (46132points) July 14th, 2010

Something so shocking/unexpected that you would stop or trip or laugh uncontrollably, dashing all hope of mounting the top step of the podium. Hypothetical of course so be as creative/funny as you wish.

@ChazMaz Yeah probably a good idea to avoid the relay then, “that’s not the fucking baton dude!”

Seeing a snake slither accross the track. A spider running down my cheek. Someone on the side of the track making a loud burp or fart. Some naked person streaking accross the track.

Usain Bolt and Powell sixtyning under the bleachers.

bob_'s avatar

@NaturallyMe No, and then… you know, let’s skip ahead, but yeah, there’d be sandwiches at some point.

@ChazMaz true story…when i was in high school running track, this guy’s jock broke running the 100yd dash and it did come out….and the Clarion Ledger had it in their paper! One the coaches’ wives said, “he (the runner) definitely not related to any of my husband’s family!”

Pooping myself would probably do it…..

Someone mowing down athletes and spectators with automatic machine gun fire.
