As the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympics are finally underway, it’s no surprise that many of us are jealous of the Olympians competing.

Getting into the Olympic spirit, TikTokers have been creating hilarious parodies pretending that they are a disappointed athlete that has missed out on participating in the Olympic Games and then revealing hilarious footage of themselves failing at a sport.

To really set the scene and the emotions, what better song to use than Olivia Roderigo’s tear-jerker ballad Traitor.

TikToker, Ben Chi (@hel1enkellersonlyfans) looked downcast as the music played and he wrote: “I’m so upset that I worked so hard at the Olympics.”
