Sprinter celebrates world title like Incredible Hulk (video)

Leave a comment

Australian Evan O’Hanlon‘s jersey couldn’t contain his excitement after learning he won an IPC world 100m title in London on Friday.

O’Hanlon and China’s Hu Jianwen crossed the finish line in a dead heat, both in 11.07 seconds. It took about 30 seconds for the scoreboard to turn up the first name, at the 2-hour, 8-minute, 40-second mark in the above video.

When it was the five-time Paralympic champion O’Hanlon, the Australian reacted by ripping his jersey apart like the Incredible Hulk.

After Hu appeared to walk off the track, the scoreboard updated to show they were co-gold medalists.

A short while later, O’Hanlon was reinstated as the sole winner, with Hu taking silver.

Afterwards, O’Hanlon tweeted, “If anyone needs me I’ll be at the pub…”

Mack Horton rekindles Sun Yang criticism before worlds

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Australian swimming gold medalist Mack Horton isn’t backing down from his criticism of Chinese star Sun Yang.

After the team from Down Under arrived in Budapest for the world championships, Horton was asked whether he was looking forward to renewing his rivalry with Sun.

The reply: “I don’t know if it’s a rivalry. I think it’s a rivalry between clean athletes and athletes who’ve tested positive.”

Horton’s comments are sure to rekindle the bitter feelings between two of the world’s top swimmers. Last summer, the Aussie said he had “no time or respect for drug cheats,” a reference to Sun’s three-month doping ban in 2014.

Horton went on to beat Sun in the 400m freestyle final.

Now, they’ll face each other again at Duna Arena. The swimming competition begins on Sunday.
