Ivan Fernandez Anaya, Spanish Runner, Intentionally Loses Race So Opponent Can Win
From the HuffingtonPost.com
A Spanish runner has shown the world that sometimes, just sometimes, winning isn’t everything.
Last month, Spanish athlete Ivan Fernandez Anaya impressed the world by giving up victory to do the right thing. According to El Pais, it happened as the 24-year-old raced a cross-country event in Burlada, Navarre on Dec. 2.
In second place to Abel Mutai, the Kenyan athlete who won a bronze medal in the London Olympics, Anaya suddenly had a chance to surge ahead. According to El Pais, Mutai mistakenly thought the end of the race came about 10 meters sooner than it did, and stopped running.
Then, he “looked back and saw the people telling him to keep going,” Anaya told CNA. “But since he doesn’t speak Spanish he didn’t realize it.”
So Anaya slowed, guiding Mutai to the actual finish line.
This is the kind of story I want blasted in the media. This is what everyone needs to hear. I am so over Lance, like everyone else, oh, except for Lance himself!
Keep on reminding us to do the right thing! Thank you.
