With this being Friday, I suppose I could just caption this video, "Heading into the weekend like…"

But check out this 60m race from Madrid, making sure that you watch all the way through the end of the competition. The man on the inside lane has wheels, no question. It's the brakes that appear to be the problem:

No word on (1) why he was the only sprinter that wasn't able to responsibly slow down before crashing violently, or (2) his condition now. Thankfully, it did appear at the end of the clip that he at least survived the vicious finish still able to walk and talk.

Nevertheless, this reinforces my personal choice not to be a world class sprinting champion.
