Olympic Race Walker Deals With Diarrhea In 50km Event
Yohan Diniz of France suffered a cruel fate in the 50 km race walk at the Rio Olympics, but somehow found the strength to keep going and finish seventh in the race.
Diniz, the world record-holder in the 50 km event, suffered intense “intestinal problems” early in the race and later was forced to stop multiple times, including once where it appeared that he passed out. And yet, each time, Diniz kept going.
Diniz didn’t win a medal, but it was a courageous effort.
Things started early when Diniz jumped out to an early lead. However, cameras zoomed in on his legs and it appeared that he was suffering from diarrhea, or as the announcers called it, “intestinal problems,” something that is not unheard of in long-distance events.
Kudos for finishing the race, but at the same time, f**********k that s#!t.
