Running in the news - Man DQ'd for taking bus

With race season here, it's hard for runners not to be in the news. Today is no exception. A runner from Sloan England decided that he had enough of running his marathon and jumped on a bus. I understand this, hitting a wall and needing a way to the finish. BUT after getting off the bus he decides that he wants to finish the race and ends up placing third. Ok, so if this couldn't get anymore crazy... the man plays it up like he actually ran the race EVEN though spectators and the runner who should have really been third saw Mr. bus man actually cheat (get off the bus and run). I am filing this one under things that make you scratch your head.

Take a look at the video! It does bring a chuckle to your day!
