Chinese Swimmer Wins Gold Medal, Celebrates Victory With Epic Fail
Ever done something incredible like downed a beer in less than three seconds and then spewed it all over yourself while jumping up and down celebrating the victory?
This is kind of like that but Sun Yang isn't a pathetic waste of space who does stupid shit to impress his mates in an attempt to feel a sense of acceptance, he's a professional athlete. Oh, and, it didn't happen in front of a few pals down the pub, it happened in front of the entire world.
The Chinese swimmer had just won a gold medal in Rio after acing the 200m freestyle final. As the crowd clapped and cheered his victory, he attempted to throw his swimming cap into the stands, only for it to somehow go flying in the completely wrong direction and end up in the pool.
300 years later and I will still be laughing at sun yang throwing his cap in the pool #YaBlewItSunYang pic.twitter.com/OAVS5wA4dM

He's now being unmercifully ripped on Twitter for the mishap...
Poor lad had a nightmare.
But does he give a flying McFuckerson? Course he doesn't! HE WON AN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL!
