Segways, or jerk strollers as their known, have no place in our world, especially when they are attacking top athletes.

The awesome Usain Bolt had just won his crazy fourth 200-meter victory in the Beijing world championships and was taking an extended bow to the gathered fans. Then, tragedy struck bolt.

Or rather some camera dude on a Seqway.

Fortunately for the world, and for the fate of that cameraman, Bolt came out of it unscathed.

Though Bolt got up holding his leg around his Achilles, causing Jamaica to hold its collective breath, he seemed fine and continued jogging around the track and taking pictures with the crowd. That's good, because as long as no one got injured, the whole thing was hilarious because that photographer — he was on a Segway, which makes it at least 75% funnier.



There are many videos of it.



And here's another angle:



And here's a Twitter video:



The best part is how he just rolls up like it's nbd. Because he's Usain Bolt.

During the Rubik Cube World Championship Finals, a teenager took the win for the second year running according to The Telegraph.

19-year-old Feliks Zemdegs, from Australia, defended his title by solving the puzzle in 5.695 seconds at the contest in São Paulo, Brazil.

There are a total of 17 different Rubik's Cube competitions at the biennial event and players are timed to see who can complete the puzzle the fastest.

Mr Zemdegs narrowly missed the world record of 5.25 seconds held by American Collin Burns.



For reference, here's Burns setting that world record in April of this year.



Zemdegs actually used to hold the world record and this better quality video shows that accomplishment. It really gives a great close up on how fast these fingers need to solve da cube (which is what I assume they call the Rubik's cube).
