1st Place Runner Collapses 50m Of Finish Line, Gets Help From 2nd Place Runner

Rob Gomez had a chance to win the $1,000 prize as the top male finisher in Maine’s TD Bank Beach to Beacon 10K after front-runner Jesse Orach had fallen for a second time within sight of the finish line.

Instead of running past Orach, Gomez stopped, pulled Orach to his feet and forcibly held him upright over the last 50 meters before giving him a final nudge forward to make sure Orach crossed the finish line first.
