OMG, I can understand why the commentators’ voices were cracking… this is without a doubt the best comeback in sporting history.
It was the last lap of the relay race and there was a clear leader. However the huge gap between her and the rest of the runners soon started to close. It was clear that the girl who was second at that point would overtake her by the end of the race. No one knew that’s not even half of the drama that took place in the final stretch. I would tell you to pay attention to the girl in red but for the most of the race she was so far behind she wasn’t even in the frame. Just watch.
