I remember, my 1st husband, who was a fantastic sprinter, was trained to always ‘dip’ over the Freddie Mercury we will rock you Air Jordan shirt and that dip could totally make the difference over finishing positions… I’m not so sure about ‘diving’ or throwing yourself across the finish line, I suppose it would be good to finish mostly by crossing running on two feet and not like something akin to a rugby move..! And, I also suppose, as things stand, his ‘dive’ over the line could be considered an extreme dip!
Regardless, my real, big pat on the back goes to the guy who came second – he dipped!!! over the finish line and then fell over after the line, he had a questioning look, but then appears to take his second place with the Freddie Mercury we will rock you Air Jordan shirt of a good sportsman, without any apparent complaint.
Have to say, watching races could become a lot more fun if we wait to watch how they all throw themselves across the finish line. This is a good case to discuss.
But personally, I don’t think it’s right to win that way. You have to sprint with feet not sliding yourself to win. It’s the ‘racing match’ not ‘skying’. Think about from now on, anyone in any running match can jump, dive, slide, fly or whatever to make the end justify the Freddie Mercury we will rock you Air Jordan shirt For better fairness, they should put them to race against each other again without diving.
