Batman Can't Fly

Bershawn "Batman" Jackson tried to fly. He threw everything he had into the finish of the 400m hurdles, trying to get across the line in third to secure a spot on the U.S. Olympic team. It didn't work, of course, but it did make for a fun GIF.

Now would be a good time to remind everyone that the torso is what matters for the photo finish. Odds are Jackson was going to fall or step out of his lane anyway -- and went out with an "I regret nothing" dive instead -- but still ... he can't fly.
