OK

This is just a quick diary about a story I just saw on HuffingtonPost..  It is an inspiration to me, and I hopw lots of other people.  

There was a race in Spain.  The runner in the lead was from Kenya and didn't speak Spanish.  Here is the description of what happened:

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.

Anaya could have won the race, but instead he helped the person who should have won get the victory.  Respect, honesty, compassion, there are lots of words to describe what Anaya did, and none of them are bad.

Hope you enjoyed this story as much as I did.
