If you didn’t catch the Rio Grande do Sul State Moto Grand Prix a few weeks ago, you missed out on a truly wondrous event. No, not because the race itself was special. By all accounts, it was just your standard contest. The reason you missed out on something wondrous is because of what one driver, Marlinton dos Reis Teixeira, did when tragedy struck.
We could break this down, but it's a story really best told via video. (Be patient and watch it all the way through.)
The next time you have an urge to complain about flopping in soccer being the worst thing ever – remember this particular incident. Soccer flopping is bad, but it’s not the worst thing ever.
This is the worst thing ever.
