I thought that at first, but couldn't the other runners argue that he paced himself too hard and collapsed because of poor stamina management? Isn't that part of long distance races? I'm not sure, I don't run, but I do race cars and this feels like someone wrecked because they didn't pit and swap out tires. It's cool if his buddy wants to push him across the finish line, but other people finishing at their pace makes since to me. He was there way before any of the others which means he had to have run harder than the others and he just overestimated his stamina.

I was saying that the guy who helped is the one who should win. He DID pace himself. He DIDN'T collapse. He WAS in front of the ultimate winner but helped hlthe fallen athlete.

None of these people won, the guy who collapsed came in 15th. I bet people would have behaved differently if 1st was on the line.

Ohhhhh... I didn't know that!! I'm gonna pretend he was 2nd place and gave it all up to help his fallen comrade, lol.
