This must-watch video is a beautiful and kind act that exemplifies good sportsmanship. It shows Abbey D’Agostino of the United States colliding with Nikki Hamblin of New Zealand in a women’s 5000m qualifying race.
After the collision, Hamblin seemed dazed and said in an interview that as she laid on the ground she didn’t really know what to do next. That’s when D’Agostino tapped her on the shoulder and reminded her where they were at.
We are at the Olympics. We have to finish this race. And they did! Despite being battered and bruised, they completed the heat.
That’s what we call true Olympic spirit!
