You can’t even make this stuff up.
A little more than nine miles into the 50-kilometer race-walking final, Olympian Yohann Diniz had an er–gastrointestinal incident–but despite his situation, he recovered after fainting with just over 11 miles left.
Diniz finished eighth in the race. Of course, plenty of people on Twitter had reaction to this, including some saying he should carry the flag for the French at the next Olympics.
Not sure we’d go that far, but I guess it’s nice that some people made light out of a crappy situation.
