Rubber duck man interrupted Olympic swimming trials

A man wearing an inflatable rubber duck ring interrupted Russia’s Olympic swimming trials on Friday, when he jumped into the pool seconds before a race.

Competitors were readying themselves for the men’s 50 metre freestyle final when the man made his surprise appearance.

Clearly ecstatic at his chance to take a dip in the Olympic-sized swimming pool, the prankster waved to the crowd as he tried to complete a length.

The unusual disruption did not last long, however, as two nearby swimmers waded into the water to reel the man back to poolside.
