This could have been a very painful accident …

In 2012, Jamaican Olympic sprinter and world record holder Usain Bolt won the 100-meter race at the Diamond League meet in Oslo, Norway. Clocking in at a speedy 9.79 seconds, Bolt had little time to slow down before a flower girl prematurely decided to hand him his victory bouquet, and inevitably crashed into her. Ouch! However, we give Bolt props for holding onto the girl, dragging her across the track until they both came to a complete stop, and finally tossing her aside for the cameras. Nice save, Bolt.
