Such as a crazy race! I was watching it yesterday as a good childhood friend of mine, Genevieve Lalonde, was running in it for Canada (and set a national record!).

And did you notice that one girl actually made a route choice mistake at the water hurdle?

Who'd have thought someone would actually get lost when they just have to run straight and turn left sometimes? (Bonus points for getting the reference)

Incredible performance! I'm slightly troubled that both Coburn and Frerichs raised there arms to celebrate a bit before the finish line. If there is anything I have learned from youtube, it's that you don't celebrate a victory until it is done.

Pink Socks:
*That* is the lesson you learned from Youtube?

Ian probably also learned not to throw on the 2 yard line.

Interesting race to watch with route choices and all...
I had Couburn as a medal favourite but Gold AND Silver to US was unexpected!
