Ethiopian steeplechaser crashes into hurdle (Video)

There are sometimes ways to tell that it just isn't your day and Ethiopian steeplechaser Birhan Getahun found that out during the 3,000 metre steeplechase heat on Friday morning.

Birhan was nearing the end of the race and only needed to clear one hurdle to reach the finish line.

Sadly for Birhan, the last hurdle got him and caused one wicked collision:

Getahun's collision would prevent him from finishing the race and he was taken off the track on a wheelchair.
