Meh, it's not like it was the actual Olympics. These girls are best friends and were paid promote a running vacation in the Caribbean during a break between training cycles. How seriously should they have been taking themselves?

Meh. One might even argue that the winner was unsportsmanlike for passing them at the end.

The two were hot dogging and acting arrogant so their reaction to losing was priceless.
