Bill Cosby's Failed Attempt At The Hammer Throw (VIDEO)

In the spirit of today's Olympic opening ceremonies, Jimmy Fallon dug up some photos of one of our favorite post 50 comedians Bill Cosby, competing at track and field, when Cosby made an appearance on "Late Night" Thursday.

It turns out Cosby was quite the athlete during his time at Temple University. Modestly, Cosby insisted his form was terrible, because "I never had any coaching, I just went around grabbing things and throwing them." Things quickly turned hilarious when Cosby decided to share the story of his less-than-stellar first attempt at the hammer throw. Check out the video above for more.
