BYU steeplechaser not afraid to share her epic plunge with the world (watch video)

No one can say BYU track athlete Katy Andrews doesn't have a sense of humor.

The Cougar steeplechaser posted this video of her epic crash during the Robison Invitational in Provo last Saturday.

Andrews was participating in the 3,000-meter steeplechase when things went horribly wrong.

"I think I caught the toe of my spike a couple steps before the barrier," she wrote when she posted the video on YouTube. "I don't remember smacking the barrier, only being completely submerged in the water -- ha ha."

Andrews is a senior from Encinitas, Calif., and La Costa Canyon High School. And she's actually a pretty good steeplechaser, having won the event at the season-opening Blue and Orange Opener with a time of 10 minutes, 9.77 seconds.

She also finished 12th in the 5000m at the New Balance Invitational.
