It was the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. Abbey D’Agostino was competing in the 5000 meter prelim race with the fastest women in the world. Three thousand meters in, the race accelerated unexpectedly, catching many by surprise. The runner in front of Abbey tripped and fell, causing Abbey to tumble as well. It could have been a small forgotten incident in the big picture of the Olympic games, but instead it went viral and it’s where this story really began.
