Young Scottish Boy Tries To Keep Pace With Kenyan Runners, Face-Plants In Spectacular Fashion


Kenya’s Caroline Kilel and Flomena Cheyech Daniel staged an epic battle in the Commonwealth Games women’s marathon in Glasgow today, as expected. But as they headed down a street toward the finish, they got unexpected competition from a young boy who thought he might challenge the two from the sidewalk.

The lad keeps pace with them for the first few steps, but then (car crash sound effect). Oh no! That’s what’s commonly known in Scotland as falling ass-over-tea-kettle.

Final results: Daniel won the gold, Kilel the silver, and little man was awarded the butt raspberry.
