We have a new candidate for the best story from the 2020 Olympics.
First we had the ‘third leg’ interview, but I must say this story of a bored cameraman filming a cockroach has to be my favorite so far.
During a hugely important hockey class between Argentina and Spain, a cameraman, well… just got a bit bored, and decided to turn his attention to a cockroach instead of the captivating Olympic sport on display.
The camera operator for Argentine sports channel TyC has gone viral after the hilarious incident.
Olympic athletes competing at a high level? Not interested.
Cockroach waddling? Yes. https://t.co/p0lLg5hDY7

When you get a sports media job, but you're not that into sports. https://t.co/PDhvNjmn31

Give this cameraman a pay rise. Immediately.
