Soccer Referee Avoids Interfering With Play by Doing the Splits

A soccer referee at Iowa Rush Champions Cup ensured she didn’t interfere with play during a girls youth match by pulling off a spectacular evasive move.

In footage shared by Iowa Rush Soccer, the official can be seen doing the splits to the amazement of the crowd as a ball bounces in her direction. While the players could be forgiven for getting distracted, play moves on seamlessly.

The event took place over the weekend of April 22 and 23. Iowa Rush Soccer has cleared this footage for client use. Credit: Twitter/IowaRush/RushWIWest via Storyful
