This Ethiopian Runner Shows Us Exactly How To Not Run The Steeplechase

The Steeplechase is a pretty grueling event. It’s long, and strenuous, and the people who participate are usually pretty great athletes, except this guy.

As you watch the end of the steeplechase at the 2012 London Olympics, you will see why Ethiopians are good at distance running, just not so good at obstacles.

Birhan Getahun was already pretty far off from the rest of the pack, but he had no quite in him. Not until he slammed right into the final hurdle. To make matters worse, he had to leave the track in a wheelchair. Not exactly the type of finish that he was going for.
