You know who else wanted to finish first in Berlin?

you screwed that one up good.

Funny thing is: after running 26 miles no one wants to kick your ass.  So go ahead and p*ss everyone off.
 
2013-09-30 09:03:16 AM
Is this guy related to Rosie Ruiz?
 
2013-09-30 09:05:41 AM
I love that they didn't bother to blur out his shirt in the shot, giving him even more free advertisement.
Mission Accomplished.

This matter should have been handled with a quick but thorough beating.

I'm surprised the race organizers did not see that coming.

Security had been tightened at this year's Berlin race in the wake of April's bomb attack on the Boston marathon which left three dead and 250 injured and for the first time the Berlin finish area was closed off.

Well, that's embarrassing.

Subby. You're a f*cking idiot. This kind of juevenille sh*t is meh at best when you're 13. When you're an adult douche bag who gets his jollies by wrecking everyone elses day. Tough sh*t. Go to jail. No pass go. So sad too bad.

2013-09-30 09:27:32 AM
So, did this guy slowed down the true race winner and reducing how much the runner was breaking the record or did the intruder spark the runner into picking up the pace making him break the record?

Anyone else see the article teaser at the bottom of the page announcing first German man to give birth at home? No? Am I hallucinating?

For all those with their panties permanently bunched...
It was a juvenile and mildly amusing stunt. No one was harmed. The winner still won. Everyone else got to finish the race. He was charged. What is your farkin' problem?

Was I the only one who read the headline thinking, "please don't be an American, please don't be an American," open the article, see the picture, "Yes!" This was a German being an a$$hole. Then again if it were an American the coverage would have been a little different. The trespasser would be a sociopath and his face would be everywhere, think the Amanda Knox trial.

The first Irish immigrants into New York were 3 men and 5 women.  All police in New York are descended from that small initial population.  True fact.

That's Rosie Ruiz and the 1980 Boston Marathon.  Not that your factoid doesn't apply to Boston, as well.

This.  Also, society needs its nose tweaked on a regular basis.  It keeps us from taking ourselves too seriously.

All that running destroys their muscle.  Once they catch you, what can they really do?

Because there's always an asshole like this to piss in the cornflakes of someone who genuinely earned the attention. This guy figured "hey, lots of folks watching - I'll screw the guy who trained for months before the event and just ran 26 miles to come in first, all so I can get cheap advertising for an escort site."

That's this asshole. You don't understand that this asshole is ruining what could very well be a seminal moment for the participants of the event, all so he or she doesn't have to pay a few bucks for advertising. In this case, he's a selfish prick and really needs to be beaten about the head and shoulders with a mailed fist.

In the documentary "Anything to Win" she refused to admit any wrongdoing.  She was quoting finishing times and stuff like that.

If you paid $750 to run in a sanctioned traithlon or ironman (Subaru series for instance) and you were about to cross the finish line after 7 to 10 months of crazy training..I mean 6 to 8 hour runs, 3 hour swims, and 100 to 200km bike sessions 2 to 3 times a week, and some arsehole thought it was a big joke to run in front of you to break the tape because they thought it was funny, would you laugh? Or would you kick them in the nuts?

Put yourself in the shoes of the people who run in these. What the guy did wasn't funny. It was stupid and childish.

A Berlin police spokesman confirmed that the man has been charged with trespassing and has subsequently been banned from future events run by the Berlin marathon's organizers.


"Tresspassing" on a public street. cute.

He wasn't an attention seeking idiot.  He was wearing a shirt promoting his website.  He was looking for publicity.  The clear photo of him being dragged away with the website clearly visible accomplished his task quite well.
I'm sure he was able to deal with a pesky little trespassing charge for that.
 
2013-09-30 10:59:15 AM
I don't really think I understand.   Would the guy that won the race, really be bothered by it?   I mean, is it a special ribbon?  Does the race not count if it gets broken some other way, and everyone has to have a do-over tomorrow?  I mean, I could understand how it could be one of those "special moment" deals,  but for the life of me, I can't imagine being really all that bothered by it, after running 20whatever miles.  Probably because I'd just collapse into a quivering cry-heap either way, really.

That sounds completely drama queenish to me.  It's not about the physicality of breaking that tape.  I'd bet that Kenyan runner has a better attitude about this than you.
