Watch this confused Japanese marathoner make a wrong turn right before the finish line. Not only did he run an exceptionally fast 26.2 miles, but he was in the lead! This is harder to watch than the most cringe-worthy of faceplants. At least the faceplanters make it across the finish line…

Another embarrassing close-up (and in English).

He’s still searching for the finish line somewhere.
