This is the X-Games definition of the old 'don't count your chickens' thing. On Saturday, an Australian named Meghan Rutledge was about to win gold in the supercross . . . so she pumped her fist while she sailed through the air on the last jump.
Except to do that, she had to take her hand of the THROTTLE . . . which is kinda bad when you're trying to land a huge jump at full speed. So she ate it when she landed, CRASHED, and lost the race. Then she cried.
