Play of the day: Chinese hurdler doesn't care

It's a display unlikely to win him a spot in China's Olympic squad, but you get the feeling that he really doesn't care.

Not just about the Olympics, but about anything.

In this train-wreck of a clip, one young student at the Chinese University Games appears to forget the basic premise of the 110m hurdles.

After hitting the first two hurdles, the unidentified competitor decided to engage bulldozer tactics, and use his chest as a battering ram as he sprinted through the remaining barriers.

Clearly not troubled by the prospect of his already certain disqualification, the determined young man somehow soldiered through to a sixth placed finish after clattering into his neighbour's lane, then wandered off the track like it was just another day at the office.

And in a commendable act of professionalism, the runner in the lane next to the wrecking ball gives a 'ghost jump' over what should have been his final remaining hurdle.

So much to love here.
