That was absolutely heartbreaking for Perdita Felicien. She hit the first hurdle and went down, taking the Russian in the next lane with her.

Her interview immediately afterwards was truly classy. Reminded me of Kurt Browning in Lillehammer, 1994.

Maybe Canada puts too much pressure on our top athletes. Maybe we need more funding for amateur athletics. Whatever the case is this was a horrible moment for Canadian sports fans.

On a side note, way to go Despatie and Muezner!
