Sportsmanship Award?

I always llke a nice sports story, since you get a lot of negative ones. You know, the steroids, the fights, the overinflated salaries.

Meghan Vogel, right, helps Arden McMath across
the finish line at an Ohio track meet.  
But good news happens from time to time. Good news that has nothing to do with who won and by how much.

Such was the case in Ohio, when a runner and at a high school track meet struggled, and a runner from an opposing team intervened.  

This high school system has a rule against one runner helping another, but they wisely decided to waive the rules in this case.  Rules are rules, yes, but there are times when they need to be bent.

So hats off to Meghan Vogel, who demonstrated that you ought to know when to compete and compete hard, and when to not compete.
