Video: Girl gets absolutely obliterated at the finishing line by incoming sprinters during this race

Whammy!

JOE imagines that a wave of adrenaline, euphoria and sheer delight must wash over any victorious athlete as they cross the finishing line but these traits definitely weren't experienced by the winner here.

The New Balance Outdoor Nationals took place in North Carolina recently and we wager that the boys 400m heats was the most memorable and frequently seen race of them all, especially after this calamitous crash at the finishing line.

Every athlete wants to come in first but these sprinters initial delight at qualifying for the main event was swiftly ended with a bump, crash, bang and wallop.

Take a look at the 01:15 mark as  the girl responsible for holding the tape at the finishing line gets absolutely smashed by the incoming sprinters.
