Most viral moments of 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Barshim, Tamberi forgo jump-off to share gold in high jump

There were a number of incredible moments from the Tokyo Olympics. From Caeleb Dressel dominating in the pool to the U.S. women winning their seventh-straight basketball gold medal, the storylines from Tokyo were endless.

Of course, some of these moments had the internet buzzing more than others.

ITALIAN, QATARI AGREE TO SHARE GOLD

Sharing is caring. But you don’t have to tell Qatar’s Mutaz-Essa Barshim and Italy’s Gianmarco Tamberi that.

Instead of having a jump-off to decide who would win the high jumping gold, Barshim and Tamberi agreed to simply share the gold medal instead. The two Olympians are close friends outside of competition, and one can imagine their friendship just got a whole lot stronger now that they’re joint gold medalists.
