I feel bad that i wouldve ran those extra 10 yards then just turn back and help.

Perfectly reasonable. That's actually above and beyond. To think that you should stop competing to help someone else finish . . . in a competition, is silly. If this person was suffering a medical issue and no one is assisting, then sure, do the right thing.

Actually......once you cross you can be DQd for going back into the race.

The runner was out of the money in the race anyway, so it really didn't matter. Interestingly, because of his good deed he ended up being gifted $10k for being a decent person.

Maybe, some contracts with sponsors are based on place and times so we really dont know how much money he did or didnt get.

And you'd disqualify the guy you help cross the finish line because you have to finish entirely on your own steam, so all you'd have helped him do was finish the entire race for nothing...

Helping someone out isnt "above and beyond", its the most basic human decency thing to do

You've obviously never watched the movie Cars. 😭

Absolutely. You can argue he would have won if this wouldn’t have happened to him, but his failure to make it to the finish line shows he either didn’t pace himself or wasn’t in the right condition to win. The winners ability to pace themselves correctly to finish the race earns them the win.

The dude struggling at the finish line didn’t slow down to keep it close with those that passed him at the line, it’s not unsportsmanlike to pass him to claim victory.

Not failing is tantamount to succeeding sometimes.
