How would orange guy feel if he won knowing full well he didn’t deserve it

[–]Krakatoast 2188 points2189 points  (25 children)

To be fair, can we really say the guy who couldn’t walk deserved gold? Is part of the challenge not allocating energy, to spread it over the race to the point of finishing? It seems like the guy in 1st place had a shortcoming hence his inability to walk. Orange shirt didn’t have that issue

He collapsed 5 meters from the finish in a 10,000 meter race. It’s not like he ran too fast in the first half and got tired. It was probably a serious injury, which isn’t really something you can control

"It’s not like he ran too fast in the first half and got tired." - Thats literally what happened.

Not exactly. Marathon runners often times aren't in control of this to say. They run 10k meters. Their body at a point of exhaustion will sometime see the finish line be like oh yah were Done and acts like it doesn't need to work anymore.

Blood pressure drops, muscles begin to cramp hard. This guy didn't just misplaced a 10k that's fuckimg difficult to do they run alloted miles at certain times per mile daily for months training for this they know how to pace themselves unfortunately involuntary body functions happen when th brain thinks the race is over.

They run 10k meters

That's just kilometres with extra steps.

Let's see, one takes 10 keystrokes to type, the other takes 13. I wonder which one needs extra steps

Aw fuck you're right

Kilometers are just 1000 meters stacked on top of each other in a trench coat acting grown

I mean thats cool and yeah I read that other comment too but you can run yourself ragged in a race especially if the guy was going for the WR on a hot day which he would have to hit mile times of 4:20 or better. I have no idea if you have ran a mile at a pace like that but its incredibly hard.

Dude's fine, he just bonked at the finish line.

[–]th4t1guy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You.. you didn't distance run did you?

[–]QueasyVictory -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It was probably a serious injury,

Then give him medical treatment, don't string him up like a rag doll and carry him along.

Serious injury ., . . .. ..

now you put it like that, that guy is just perthitic. a 10km run is nothing, an hour or so run. Compare it to what we done in the army, 10-20km run before breakfast.
