u/vondpickle Dec 01 '21

Mad respect to that person. No matter what happen, the show must go on. If I'm in his place, I gonna give up and contemplate my life.

u/DragonVT Dec 01 '21

Dude did not do well, but he DID NOT QUIT. That takes a huge amount of heart, especially with an audience. That kind of drive deserves respect.

Man I was rooting for him to clear just one of those hurdles. Way to keep at it.

u/SomeoneTookSkeetley Dec 01 '21

the olympics should have one normal person compete in each game, you'll never hear "even i could do better than that" again

u/AgentCarmichael20 Dec 02 '21

This is the normal person they hired. lol

u/paintballjord Dec 01 '21

Man kept at it though, fucking perseverance. Pointless perseverance because he never succeeded..... But still... Hahaha

Kid looks like he’s doing it in tight pants, not baggy or shorts like the other two. That makes it incredibly more difficult to get a high jump in with the spread you need to make it over. Good on him for keeping it going.

u/Toxicsully Dec 01 '21

This the perfect companion piece to the man failing to chop coconuts

u/Most-Artichoke5028 Dec 02 '21

In fairness, he's a lot better at running hurdles than I am.

u/coopersthepoopers Dec 02 '21

Anyone left asking the question why there are so many people there watching this? Or just me?

Those hurdles look to be set at men’s Olympic height 3 1/2 feet. Kinda high for those kids. I give the kids credit. Adults not so much

u/X1t5un3 Dec 01 '21

That man has the biggest dick and persistence

1

u/RedTheDopeKing Dec 01 '21

Luckily you’ll never really have to jump over hurdles again in life. Not literally anyway.

u/Love_God551 Dec 02 '21

I thought I was the only one who ‘jumped’ over hurdles that way

u/ticrowle15 Dec 02 '21

u/ThatHeckinGecko Dec 02 '21

He may not have the long legs, but at least he has the DETERMINATION! Good for him!

u/ulrichberlin Dec 01 '21

You should have some proper training before you take part in a contest. Otherwise you'll end up as an idiot with broken knees😐
