Runner ‘Attacked’ By Rubber Band In Freakiest Track Mishap Ever


Aengus Meldon was leading an 800-meter heat at a college meet in Athlone, Ireland, on Friday when the unthinkable happened. And we mean unthinkable.

Who would ever think that a giant elastic band serving as a pole vault practice bar would spring onto the track, coil around his legs like a snake, and ruin his race?

But that’s what transpired, as Deadspin reported.

Props to the announcer for turning Meldon’s misfortune into a Spider-Man adventure.

Just watch and listen above.
