Good sportsmanship makes for a bigger win

This video shows great sportsmanship by Spanish runner Fernandez Anaya. Kenyan athlete Abel Mutai thought he’d already passed the finish line so he slowed down, and Fernandez caught up with him.  The fans were trying to tell Abel to keep running, but since he didn’t speak Spanish he didn’t understand.   Fernandez *could* have run past him and won the race.  Instead, he helped guide Abel to the finish line first, and then took second place himself.  Good citizenship, kindness, and doing the right thing is a better idea.
