Watch: Olympic Racewalker Soils Himself, Faints, And Still Manages To Finish In Top 10
By Mikey Traynor

It is not uncommon for long distance runners and racewalkers to fall victim to a dodgy stomach while they are pushing themselves to the limit, but most athletes would pray that if it does happen to them, that it doesn't happen with the world watching.

Sadly for French racewalker Yohann Diniz, a very unfortunate accident took place at the Olympic games, not only with the world watching the event, but with a cameraman on a motorbike literally driving behind him looking for a close-up...

Which is a bit harsh, especially when you see just how determined he was to get those shots. Clearly he had a producer in his ear, shouting for more poo:

Diniz also fainted due to exhaustion during the race, and went on to finish in a seriously impressive 8th place, two places ahead of Ireland's Rob Heffernan.

It shows just how much these racewalkers have to go through. 50km is an unthinkable distance for most folk, and to push your body to the limit to the point where it clearly demands that you stop, only to keep going and finish strong is a real testament to the character of Yohann Diniz.

Sadly, only one part of this story is being reported, and naturally the links to Gary Lineker have been flying around social media.

The man himself even offered a comment.

He's never ever going to live that down? Is he?
