This week’s version of premature ejokulation: In the midst of her final jump in her final lap of a Moto-X race where she seemed destined for gold, Meghan Rutledge decided to celebrate with a fist pump with her right hand.
That’s OK if you’re Tiger Woods and you have just drilled a big-time putt.
Not OK if you’re trying to maintain balance on a motorcycle 30 feet in the air — especially when that celebratory right hand should be on the throttle.
The bike: It came crashing down.
The gold medal: It went to American Vicki Golden (Rutledge, from Australia, finished seccond).
The lesson: in the words of Lenny Kravitz, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.”
