The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Flying Double-Tackle

6:31 PM EDT on September 18, 2023

Two Olimpia players stay down after being tackled.

The soccer tackle I am about to show you is so flagrantly reckless and so hilariously executed that at first I did not believe it was real. Surely this clip was made by a crew of YouTube pranksters as viral marketing for an energy drink, or something.

But no, this really happened. Marath贸n played Olimpia yesterday in a Liga Nactional match in Honduras that ended in a 1-0 victory for Olimpia. Marath贸n defender Andr茅 Orellana was sent off in the 86th minute. For what, I ask. For what???

Thank you for your continued support of Defector. Onward.
