The crowd at Olympic Stadium went silent when British hurdler Jack Green fell early in Saturday night's semifinals.
Green was in tears after failing to advance to the 400-meter hurdle finals.
"I hit hurdle three because I'm an idiot," says Green, who bloodied his knees.
It was a humbling moment for the young sprinter, who is now hopeful he'll still be considered for Britain's relay team.
"I'm not good enough on this level like I thought I was," he says. "I need to get on that relay team and show people what I can really do with a baton in my hand."
