Devon Allen may have missed out on the 110m hurdles final at the IAAF World Championships in London this past weekend but he definitely won over the judges on the internet (i.e. everyone) after impressing with some magic during his hilarious pre-race introduction.
It's certainly not a new trick but the Olympic hurdler's choice of move in lieu of waving at the crowd or awkwardly ignoring the camera was inspires.

If he ever feels like a gear shift in terms of career, magic is definitely calling.
