You remember Katy Andrews, the BYU steeplechaser who totally ate it when she slipped while approaching a water jump during a race in Provo last weekend?

Now, you can get an even better view of her epic plunge.

Jaren Wilkey, the manager of the university photography office, caught some amazing still and video shots of Andrews tumbling hard over the barrier and into the water, giving added context to the YouTube video that Andrews herself posted earlier this week.

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

Our BYU writer Jay Drew reports that Andrews, a senior, is quite a good steeplechaser, apart from her misstep at the Robison Invitational last weekend. She won her 3,000-meter event at the season-opening Blue and Orange opener in 10 minutes, 9.77 seconds, and also finished 12th in the 5,000 meters at the New Balance Invitational.
