In a world fueled by smartphones, GPS and mobile apps, there is simply no excuse for such a costly mistake. Beyond that, where the hell were their coaches? Was no one paying attention to the schedule? If I were one of these unfortunate athletes, you better believe there would be some kind of body slamming going down. Someone would be wearing the podium.
