"Spiderman attacked him": Irish runner struck by flying elastic cross bar in freak athletics accident



Runner Aengus Meldon sprints towards victory at a university athletics event in Athlone, Ireland on Friday when he is hobbled in a freak accident. An elastic practice cross bar from a nearby pole vault catapults onto the track, wrapping around his legs.

Meldon had been leading his heat of the men’s 800 metres at the time and was thus given a place in the final.
