The Beijing Olympics 2022 are giving us such "how out of shape are we?" vibes while also being incredibly exciting. There we were at 4am watching the skiathlon, which has to be the most grueling thing we've ever witnessed.
American Jesse Diggins came in sixth, which sounds like she was way behind, but there was a crush of five women together and all of them grew up in the Alps or Scandinavia except her, so it was a question of seconds of difference between medaling and not.Diggins collapsed on the ground, chest heaving, mouth open, gasping like a fish out of water.
Then she turned on her side and began vomiting. It was pretty scary to witness, but the commentators were bizarrely blasé about it.
