Panamanian athlete Rolanda Bell suffered the embarrassment of falling headfirst into the water jump during the Women's 3000 metres steeplechase.
Professional steeplechaser Bell was eliminated after the fall in the first round during the World Championships in Beijing but ended up producing these amazing pictures.
"I'm very disappointed because I had never fallen before. I do not know if it was nerves, but my feet were out of place and missed the jump," Bell said after the race.
