Marathon Man Loses £17k

AUSTRALIA - Gold Coast Marathon

Kenyan athlete Nicholas Manza Kamakaya missed out on a £17,000 bonus by just one second as he won the Gold Coast Marathon in Australia.


The 26-year-old won the race in a time of 2 hours 10 minutes and one second - thereby missing out on the huge cash bonus for a runner hitting the 2:10 barrier by the narrowest of margins.

Even worse, Kamakaya was on schedule to record a time of around 2:09:30 until the later stages of the race - and though he ran hard over most of the final 100 yards, he slowed right down as he broke the tape with his arms held aloft.

About World Sport Bloopers

World Sport Bloopers was created following the frustration of using video sites. Many offered videos that were filed under 'funny' or 'humor' but were not specific to sport. It required a lot of searching to find what we wanted. Even when you found the video, it was often edited poorly or inserted in a news segment so it had less impact.

World Sport Bloopers is inspired by UK shows like Fantasy Football (hosted by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner), the eccentric Frenchman Remi Gaillard and US shows like Jackass. We aim to bring you the best bloopers, fails and WTF moments. We hope you enjoy the site!!
