Aussie Shot Putter Proves That Remote Control Cars Have No Business In The Olympics

Who said the Olympics can’t be fun? To celebrate London 2012, four Aussie guys have got together to test their shot putting prowess against a moving target: a poor, helpless remote control car named Barry. The results should teach you that shot puts hurt. A lot.

The rules were simple: hit the remote control car as it rolls down a hill with a shot put, before it crosses the line at the bottom of the incline. Simple, right?

It took our Australian contender a few throws to make contact with the RC car as it rolled down the hill, but when it hit, it was a bloodbath.

Watch the video to see how the Australian Institute of Sport should be training our track and field athletes.

Thanks Brett for sending this one in!
