Two Bad Vaults

Later that same evening, I watched in horror as the Canadian Women’s Vaulter botched her first attempt and then failed to complete a second. I felt terrible for her, as I would for any athlete in her position.

Laura: What happened there, Aaron? This wasn’t a swimming event?

Me: I haven’t got an excuse for this one. Sometimes it’s just bad luck. It’s times like these that make me wonder if our National Anthem isn’t Oh Canada! but rather Ohhh, Canada!
