    I was watching this as it happened. Heartbreaker.

    I think the REAL moral of the clip is that if you crash and blow a race in the olympics, you can redeem yourself by winning Dancing with the Stars.

    Reminds me of that clip where this guy raises his hands in victory near the finish line of a bike race and totals. The guy in 2nd just passes by...

    the best part is, he was last in the semi final too but 2nd, 3rd and 4th crashed into each other at the end allowing him to come second and go through to this race

    ...and in the quarter final he came third (only the top two go through) but the guy in front of him was disqualified!
