Hurdler bails on first hurdle, finishes anyway

Haiti’s Jeffrey Julmis took a massive tumble in the men’s 110m hurdles semi-final at the Rio Olympic Games on Tuesday.

Julmis went flying out of the blocks but his knee caught the first hurdle, cueing an impressive wipeout.

But the Haitian wasn’t done yet, as he got up and finished the race anyway to a massive ovation from the Rio crowd. Julmis was last in the race, but first in hearts the world over. Well played sir.
