Before you click play, know that she goes down on the final hurdle. The anticipation will be dreadful.

Some hurdling videos are unrepentantly hilarious. This is not one of those videos. This is the State Championships in Oregon, and it is the Finals, and it is probably the biggest moment of this young girl's life so far. It is some kind of horrific allegory for absolute failure at the absolute most crucial time.

It's also kind of funny, when you watch it the second time.
