My friend Slade over at HyperVocal passed this along to me this morning with the subject line, “This is awesome/awful.”
Here’s what happened: Kenyan distance runner Wilson Kipsang was about to set a new world record time at the Berlin Marathon on Sunday. His big moment at the finish line was interrupted by some clown crossing over the guardrail and running onto the track wearing a shirt for a website that matches prostitutes with “gentlemen with high demands.” The guy didn’t even let Kipsang break the tape.
Well done, sir.
Kipsang still finished with a time of two hours, three minutes and 23 seconds — 15 seconds better than the previous mark — but all photos of him crossing the line will be marred with this jabroni and his prostitution website.
