                                                                A tall athletic guy with a sprinters body similar to Usain Bolt's.. desperately superman diving across the finish line to edge out over a white guy looking like he should be competing in 10k races..
                                                                Maybe that's what was the reason why he dove ;)
                                                                Kinda hilarious his teammate went down also, almost like he was was afraid he was going to out efforted and possibly he might get better style points for tucking and rolling instead of the face plant approach.. LoL..
