Meet Brian Basili: Badass

Brian Basili is a junior on the Villanova track and cross country teams. Prior to this weekend, his claim to fame was finishing in the cross country team's top five runners at the Pre-National meet this past fall after team #1 Sam McEntee ran into some gastrointestinal distress. That was until yesterday, when Basili, who was running the first steeplechase of his career fell while jumping over one of the barriers and broke his arm. Now, a normal human being would probably stop and attend to the fact that their arm hurts like a motherfucker, but not this guy, who went to jump over the two remaining barriers, finish the race, and win his heat with a Big East qualifying time.

Needless to say, the rest of the Villanova track team was pretty jacked up about it:

Perhaps a bit of hyperbole with the Kevin Ware comparisons, but still fucking awesome.
