Cross Country Runner Hilariously Faceplants Across Finish Line

A 21-year-old French runner, Jimmy Gressier, defended his title as the Under-23 European men’s cross country championship, but it didn’t finish the way he wanted. He tried to slide on his knees over the finish line like soccer players do when they score a goal, but instead he stopped sliding abruptly and face-planted across the finish line. If you’re interest, Gressier finished the course in 23 minutes and 37 seconds.
