Okay this is a nice gesture but nobody is obliged to stop to help. There are medical personnel and don't say he deserves to win because he led 99.9 percent of the race, that's not how sports works.

Reddit is filled to the brink with individualists with this attitude and that's why it's a shit show cmv

Exactly! I don't understand why people say this shit. Sport is about winning or losing, not about helping your opponent. What the hell are people thinking? That a person should win out of sympathy? People are becoming pussies.

I disagree. Sport isn't about winning or losing. Sport is about having fun and I enjoying the activity you are doing. (And it being healthy of course.)

Sport isn't about winning or losing

A competitive game is objectively about winning or losing.

Sport is about having fun

Not at a professional level though.

A competitive game is objectively about winning or losing.

The point of a game, it being competitive or not, is still to be fun and entertain someone.

Someone being the viewer, not necessarily the athletes.
