Scott Downard - Run with your own number tag
Scott Downard, a 25-year-old runner won the Cowtown Marathon in Fort Worth, Texas, on Sunday, last weekend. However, he was disqualified for not registering for the race.
Downard ran with a bib which was meant for his friend who signed up for the race. His friend may not have been able to run in the race. When the issue was addressed, Downward admitted the flaw. Hence, Kolin Styles, 25, became the winner. Styles finished the race in 2 hrs, 40 min, 54 sec, more than three minutes behind Downard.
The good part of it all was that Downward was able to take the disqualification gracefully and resolved that he will be back for next year's race.
