Elite Daily- Two Minnesota high schoolers forfeited their chances of winning a state-level cross country race after helping a third across the finish line.
True competition is dead. Everyone is too damn nice now. How far were these girls from the finish line? Fifty meters? Finish the race then go back and get her. Friend of a runner my ass. There's no friends on the field of play. Show me some killer instinct one time ladies. How long could this race possibly be? It's not like she broke her leg. She wasn't going to die. She said it herself, she fell down and it wasn't good. Well no shit it's not good, no part of running involves falling down. How about you stand up and fucking walk it off. Perseverance, ever heard of it Jessica.
The title of this video is incredibly misleading. It calls this a good deed. This isn't a good deed. All they taught this girl was to quit. To embrace failure. I bet her coach and her parents told her she did a great job afterwards. Hopefully the cross country coach rips these girls a new one. He'll probably get fired by the school. Can't even get his girls to finish the race in a timely manner without being self righteous philanthropists. Good deeds don't win championships ladies, figure it out.
Did you hear the girl in this interview? "It means I accomplished my goal of competing at state and doing well". That is one sentence and I see three blatant problems with it. They include 'accomplished', 'competing', and 'doing well'. She literally did none of these. Once you have to be scarped off the grass by another person you give up the right to say you competed in, or accomplished, anything. Nevermind doing well. Only in 2014 can failure be a feel good story.
At least it wasn't snowing I guess...
