    Kinda funny those other guys paid several hundred dollars for their swim suits and disqualified, and the guy with the $20 speedo is the one that one...


    Doesn't matter how good you swim if you jump the gun...

    It's real. The sad part is that country doesn't even have a pool in their entire country.


    I removed it.

    I feel bad for them...If I was an olympic swimmer (i.e. Michael Phelps)
    I'd donate money to build a pool for them. You have to give the guy credit for finishing that race cause I'm sure as hell wouldn't be much faster than him lol

    I remember hearing his story during the Sydney Olympics. It was actually an inspiring story. During his Olympic race he finished last but got a standing ovation from the crowd.

    The voices of the announcers in that video were added later.
