Stealing Glory: A World Record Photobomb

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

photobombHave you ever been photobombed?  You know, where you are just about to capture that perfect moment on camera and then someone jumps in the picture or makes an inappropriate gesture in the background.  If you have been, than you should enjoy this next bail bond blog post.

Marathon running is one of those things that is hard to understand for most people.  The idea of running 26 miles is not just an impossible feat (no pun intended) for most, but also considered absolutely crazy.  But what if we told you there was a way that you could win a marathon and do so without breaking a sweat.  Would you believe us?  Well, a German man did exactly that this past weekend when he passed the race leader in the last few meters of the race to claim an amazing victory.  The problem was that the man had only run a few meters before he crossed the finish line.  He was actually photobombing the race.  The man was chased down by race officials and handed over to the police.

The worst part of all, is that the real winner of the race, Kenyan runner, Wilson Kipsang, didn’t just run 26 miles and have his glory taken away at the end, but he ran the 26 miles in world record time.  Yes, he was about to set a world record…in other words the fastest marathon time EVER!!!  Anyway, call it classless, call it stupid, but no matter what you think, this photobomb will go down in history as a world record.  Read the original story below.
