“Tired Gay succumbs to Dix” is the year’s most popular Reuters story

Pin it

"Olympic bronze medalist Walter Dix edged out Tyson Gay in the former world champion's hotly-anticipated return to the 200 meters at the Prefontaine Classic Diamond League meeting Saturday."

That's the unassuming lede of an article titled "Tired Gay succumbs to Dix in 200 meters," a headline that's produced many giggles since its October publication. Turns out, it also produced a ton of pageviews for reuters.com — the most of the year, reports Business Insider

But if you, like, hate reading and stuff, you could just watch Gay get beat by Dix in the video below… but I promise that it won't be as funny.
