Watch These Olympic Athletes Decide To Share The Gold
Some of the best Olympic moments happen when athletes decide to set the competition aside and work together.
Over the weekend, Mutaz Essa Barshim from Qatar and Gianmarco Tamberi from Italy found themselves in a rare, potentially sticky situation:
They had both tied for gold in the Men’s High Jump.
Fortunately, though, these two are friends both on and off the field. So, it didn’t take them long to decide to share the medal.
Check out the moment it happened here, but be warned, it might make you emotional:
