A Kenyan elite runner passes water to a dehydrated disabled Chinese runner who was suffering. This slowed her time. She came in 2nd in the race not only costing her the win but also the $10,000 cash prize. It’s not all about winning.
During the 2010 Zheng-Kai marathon Jacqueline Nyetipei Kiplimo from Kenya saw a Chinese elite disable athlete struggling to drink water. She ran with him from the 10km to the 38km mark aiding him through all the water stations. This slowed her time — she came in 2nd in the race — not only costing her the win but also the $10,000 cash prize.
