Steeplechaser Stumped by Subway Barrier
Occurred on May 21, 2022 / Brooklyn, New York, USA
Info from Licensor: "Carmen was in NYC to race a 3k steeplechase at the NYC Qualifier the day before, where she ran a personal best and qualified for the US Track and Field Championships. The ironic thing about Carmen’s epic fail was that she jumps over barriers for a living.
Her flight was later the next day so she and her friend had a few drinks before making the trek from Manhattan to JFK. Carmen was a little typsy and it was her first time on the metro train. She didn’t understand which direction to insert the Metro card. She assumed that the gate would open like French doors when she walked through, but she was wrong. Carmen was thrown over the gate along with her bags. She collects her bags and bends over to collect herself. Her friend laughs at her and continues to video as the ticket clerk Carmen insert her ticket correctly."
