Viral Video Of Reporter Who Did A Flip After Getting Hit By A Snow Toboggan Still Impresses 11 Years Later
11 years ago, Global News sports anchor Rob Leth decided to do some coverage of a toboggan race. Little did he know that he'd be engaging in some strenuous physical activity himself.
As he was standing in the snow, two toboggans came towards him and he was caught unawares when one of the racers hit him. But the shock allowed him to execute a near perfect flip.
People were glad that this clip resurfaces on its anniversary.

Leth himself seemed a little nonplussed, but fans couldn't get enough.
