"Fun" to watch? She herself to blame for her failures. If she had gotten up and finished the race in 2012, she would have ended up with a medal - if not then, she'd have one now after the multiple drug busts.
Instead, she disgraced herself, her competitors, her country, and the sport of track and field by lying on the ground like a crybaby.
You sir, are the disgrace to the sport of track and field. Anyone who understands the sport knows the moment you fall in an international 1500, it is over - end of story. The runners are all too closely bunched in terms of talent - you can't overcome a 2 or 3 second gap.
Ronald Kwemoi fell in this year's Olympic final before 700 meters. He got back up. Where did he finish? DFL in 13th.
Ryan Gregson fell in the first 100 of this year's Doha meet. He got back up. Where did he finish? DFL in 12th.
And you think Uceny would have medalled if she'd gotten up even though her fall came in the final 400? You are an idiot.
Watch the fall here:
