Friday Faceplant: Young Boy Races Elite Marathoners And Trips

This young fan was in the lead until gravity got the better of him.

An eager and ambitious young Scottish lad takes a tumble in an attempt to run with the elite at the Commonwealth Games’ women’s marathon on July 27. His competitors, Kenyan long-distance runners Flomena Daniel and Caroline Kilel, had no idea that they had a very brief, third contender in the field as they ran through Glasglow, Scotland with only a few miles left in the race.

Daniel finished in 2:26:45, taking first place, and Kilel came in a close second of 2:27:10. Little did they know they could have been outrun by a spectating boy, had it not been for that fall (most likely the fault of a crack in the asphalt).
