This is How We Do Track in Hawaii

This is how to go out a winner… even if you are a loser!

Only in Hawaii will you see a kid do this after a face plant!


UPDATE: KHON2 News posted the following link:  Video of Manoa student’s track meet fall goes viral:

…Ninth grader Christian Vasconcellos was competing in the hundred-meter dash when he tripped and fell across the finish line.

But he turned his flub into an internet hit by doing the “worm” when he hit the ground...

Hawaiian Blind Snake?

Is this a Hawaiian Blind Snake?

Or just another trippy worm?
