I just saw a guy lose the Gold

…and I couldn’t feel worse for him. – Emmons loses gold medal after aiming at wrong target
Ahead by a comfy margin with 1 shot left, he basically just had to hit the target for a gold. He hit the target, all right: his neighbors’ target. There’s a D’oh! moment.

He already has a gold, so he’s not completely left out, but I cannot imagine how many times he’s going to kick himself in the next few decades.

I’m kicking myself out of sympathy, that’s how much it hurt to watch it happen.
