The World Athletics Championship during the 5000-meter race, the audience got to see something after which everyone present in the stadium was surprised.
The greatest beauty of the game is not the record of victory, but the spirit of the game. In the ongoing IAF World Athletics Championship in Doha (Doha), it was once again proved that you do not have to come in the first place to be the winner.
During the 5000 meter race, the audience got to see something after which everyone present in the stadium was surprised.
Sports spirit was seen in the 5000-meter race
In fact, Dabo was running in his last lap after listening to the Breema of Guinea Basao during the 5000-meter race, he was far from qualifying and though he tried to achieve his personal best.
At that time, he was looking at the athlete of Jonathan Busby of Aruba, who was tired due to heat and was struggling to run.
Seeing him in this condition, Basbi went to him and helped him reach the finish line by holding him. During this time, spectators at the stadium gave a standing ovation to the athlete. After the race was over, Dabo said, ‘If any athlete were in my place, he would have done the same.
The help of a player from another country is very common. He was also representing his country like me. He just thanked me.
Both players were the only athletes to represent their country at the World Championships. Both were invited under the special quota of the World Championship.
The IAAF sends special invitations to some countries in which they can send an athlete to participate in the World Championship even if they have not qualified.
Sport is about so much more than just your own performance.
