Student Helps Injured Opponent Cross Finish Line at Championship Track Meet [VIDEO]


This is an incredible display of sportsmanship. Ohio high school student Meghan Vogel helped her opponent over the finish line in a championship high school track meet. This video you can show your kids and you don’t even have to say a word. This competitor has heart and even though she did not win, she is still a winner.

Here’s what the Associated Press wrote about the moment:

The 17-year-old West Liberty-Salem High School junior was in last place in the 3,200-meter run as she caught up to Arlington High School sophomore Arden McMath, whose body was giving out. Instead of zipping past McMath to avoid the last-place finish, Vogel put McMath’s arm around her shoulders, half-dragging and half-carrying her about 30 meters to the finish line.”

Here’s the raw video of Meghan helping Arden across the finish line. Remember, this girl was NOT her teammate, it was an opponent.
