The 2015 Austin Marathon was held this past weekend, and the final stretch for one of the runners was both inspiring and pretty hard to watch.
Kenya’s Hyvon Ngetich was leading the pack for most of the race, but near the finish line her body started to give up.
She ended up crawling the rest of the way (about 50 yards), even refusing to use a wheelchair offered by race officials.
“For the last two kilometers, I don’t remember,” said Ngetich. “Finish line, I have no idea.”
Despite the struggle, she still ended up getting 3rd place, and the race director offered her the same amount of money as the second place finisher.
“You ran the bravest race and crawled the bravest crawl I have ever seen in my life,” he said. “You have earned much honor, and I am going to adjust your prize money, so you get the same prize money you would have gotten if you were second.”
You can watch all 4.5 minutes of her finish below.

With just one letter on the board, Rufus figured out this 17-letter phrase for an event was “Championship Match.”
Last year a guy managed to solve a puzzle in the final round on the first guess (“New Baby Buggy”) with only two letters on the board.
