Champ Helps Injured Competitor Across Finish Line


Champ Helps Injured Competitor Across Finish Line
Sometimes, a simple gesture can take on a much greater meaning. During an Ohio track meet, Meghan Vogel sacrificed her own position to help Arden McMath, a fellow runner who fell down finish the race. Closed captioning of: Runner helps injured competitor finish race and now a heartwarming story out of columbus, ohio, that proves coming in last can still make somebody a winner. for one runner, it was a show of sportsmanship extending far beyond a single track meet. it was a great day for megan, even though she came in dead last in her final race of the day. she helped a competitor who had fallen on the last lap of the race. it was really emotional, and people came up to news tears just really moved by what megan had done. her day began when she won the ohio state title for the 1600 meter race. the first girl from west liberty salem high school to win a state track title in more than 20 years. just to be able to achieve something that you've worked all your life for. that's a really good feeling and you can't probably put it into words. but what most people will remember won't be that win but meghan's final race of the day. after winning the 1600meters, she ran in the 3200 meter race just under two miles, when she noticed fellow runner arden had fallen on the last lap. i was coming around the turn, and it was probably about 100 meters left, and she was probably about 50 meters in front of me, maybe a little bit more, a little bit less, and i saw her fall. vogel then guided mcmath, carrying her across the finish line ahead of vogel herself. i just kind of didn't think twice about it. i knew i was just going to go help and help her out. you deserve to finish no matter who you are. i was going to make that happen for her no matter what. i knew she would do the same for me. i was going to do that for arden . what a sweet girl. meghan vogel will be a senior next year. arden mcmath will be a junior so they may end up competing against each other again.
