Now this is something you call kindness and sportsman spirit, and it’s still among people!
A high school runner competing in 3200 meter race held in Columbus has become the center of national attention. Not only for winning the race, but more importantly, the act of kindness she showed by helping a struggling competitor finish the race.
Overwhelmingly praised for her sportsmanship, Meghan Vogel, a 17-year-old junior at West Liberty Salem High School in western Ohio caught up to Arlington High School sophomore Arden McMath, whose body was giving out because of fatigue.
Even though, Meghan was in last place she avoided zipping past Ms McMath, but instead draped the runner’s arm around the shoulder, dragging and carrying her about 30 meters to the finish line.
While speaking to Associated Press in a telephone interview Ms Vogel said that she did what she thought was right. Meghan’s mother Ann Vogel said that she is proud of her daughter and the way she acted in the situation.
She said people came up to them in tears and hugged both of us after the race.
