Got an image you'd like to see in here first thing in the morning? Send it to tips@deadspin.com. Subject: Morning crap.

Yeah, that's right. Track and field in a non-Olympic year. And not even the fun running sports. It's a dude jumping over a bar. Or maybe hitting the bar. Who really knows? It doesn't seem like he's going to be able to get his feet over it, but then you don't know Sweden's Linus Thornblad, do you?

All I know is that sleeping on a pillow top mattress is usually enough to throw my back out of alignment, so I assume Linus is going to need heating pads and a ton of Icy Hot for the rest of this year.
