Another Olympic Scandal

Any yet another example of a wasted effort.
First it was badminton players being booted from the Olympics for throwing a match.
Now a runner has disgraced himself. Why would anyone work so hard to be in a position
to win and throw it all away by throwing his run? And the worse part is, he could have
withdrawn from the race or for that matter not even entered it. This Algerian runner was
pegged to win at 1500. Why cause grief and possible injury to enter something else you
knew you were not going to put the effort to do?

What was going through his head? Did he want his 15 seconds of TV glory? Did he suddenly
decide that it wasn't worth the effort? Whatever it was, he has stained himself, a stain that
will be there forever
