Let's do a more frame-by-frame analysis of just when exactly Ingebrigtsen's situation went from "Gosh, I really hope no one notices this slight tear near my balls" to "Oh, great, now everyone's going to think my balls are flopping out of my shorts."

All's normal at the start, although you can almost see the beginnings of a tear.

Nothing that can be done at this point. Just head for the finish, Henrik. (As fast as you can.)
