After 750 meters of swimming, 20 km of cycling and 5 km of running, you would think you’ve dealt with the biggest obstacles, but that turned out to be a lie at the Europe Triathlon Cup in Holten, last weekend, because the greatest obstacle was at the finish line. Due to a dip or a bump in the carpet, athletes massively stumbled across the finish. Both the winner in the men’s and women’s race crashed when they tried to reach for the tape. You can see some crashes in the video compilation below.
