Kenya’s Daniel Wanjiru and Mary Keitany were the first man and woman to cross the finish line at Sunday’s London Marathon, but it was this young lady’s reaction to a photo she snapped at the finish line that won our hearts.
Abelhadi El Harti finished second in the ambulant class, but as he crossed the finish line, Kim Wright took a photo on her cellphone just as his cock and balls fell out of his late-’70s gym teacher shorts. And a split second after that, another photographer captured what appeared to be the moment Wright looked down at her phone and realized exactly the kind of stones it takes to run 26.2 miles and finish second in your class.
Sadly, Wright admitted yesterday that it wasn’t El Harti’s beanbag and blood lumber that left the stunned look on her face.
“I wish I could tell you that I’d snapped the runner and his bits but truth be told I didn’t even notice they were hanging out, ” she said. “I was busy checking my boyfriend’s tracking app as he was running it yesterday and going for a good time.”
Well, that explanation was rather unfortunate, almost as unfortunate as being the the dude who got busted checking out El Harti’s goods in the same photo.
