We always are looking to praise those that are bringing good ideas and trying to come up with novel ways to make the sport grow. The video below is bizarre but worth a click. At the 2013 Gugl Games on Monday in Austria, there was a 400 hurdles race between two-time Olympic 400 champ Félix Sánchez and a guy on a bike, Tom Öhler of Austria.
It’s definitely worth a watch.
The official results show Öhler as the winner:
1 169 Tom Öhler AUT 44.62
2 170 Felix Sanchez DOM 49.86
Personally, we feel Öhler should have been disqualified for going outside of his lane several times. Is it too late to file a protest?
