True Spirit of a Runner

These two ladies are "opponents" at a state meet. Both are no longer in the 'running' for a medal in this event. When the first lady comes across the second lady who has 'bonked' out and can not pick herself up to make it across the finish, the first lady decides to pick her up and help her finish. Notice how she stops to make sure the second lady gets across the finish line first. As runners we understand what it's like to give it you're all and still have a bad day. We know what it took to even get to the race. We know we all deserve to come across the finish line. And if you can't do it on your own, I'll help you. ...(Unless I still have a chance at placing. In that case you're on your own). :) Technically, according to the rules, both runners should have been disqualified. However, neither ladies were disqualified. Good call judges!:)
