Well, that was awkward.
During the hockey game between Argentina and Spain, the cameraman did not focus on the ladies who were fighting for the Olympic medal. No, his sole focus was on a cockroach.
This cinematic gold from Argentinian TV soon found its way to Twitter, where users were both amused and baffled with the live footage of the bug.
It is safe to say that the channel in question, TyCSports, never got this much coverage.
As for the Olympic Games in Tokyo, you know that not everything is going great when a video of a cockroach has over 5 million views and counting.

One Twitter user described our feelings perfectly:
“This video has set the bar so high for me, I don’t think anything will ever make me feel as amused as an Olympics cameraman focusing on a roach just vibing instead of focusing on literally anything else.”
Any thoughts on this interesting piece of Olympic history?
