His Opponent Was On The Verge Of Collapsing. So, He Carried Him To The Finish Line
The opening day of the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Doha, Qatar, saw an incredible moment of sportsmanship in the Men’s 5000m heats.
Guinnea-Bissau’s Braima Suncar Dabo saw a fellow runner, Jonathan Busby of Aruba, struggling on the final lap and helped him to the finish line.
After the race, the two atheletes – who had never met before the race – embraced during an emotional reunion.
“You’re the biggest man – with the biggest heart,” Busby told Dabo.
