A couple of weeks ago, a couple of sports fans took a trip to the track in the hope of catching up on the latest news about the Rio 2016 Olympics.
As the sun set over the city, they went for a spin on the iconic “Barefoot” track and ran in hopes of catching the Olympic Games in action.
After about 20 minutes, they realised that they had not caught up on what was going on in Rio, but were in for a treat.
A group of track fans gathered at a nearby cafe, and as they got into a waiting car, they saw a man in his 40s and 50s running a race.
They asked what the hell he was doing, and the man said he was trying to catch the world record for the most people in the fastest time on the “barefoot” course.
The man told them he had come to track the track as a race runner, and was aiming to break the record, and then proceeded to run a half-marathon and a marathon in just over two hours.
This man had made the world’s fastest time in a track and run, the Olympic Trials said.
But what had really impressed them, and perhaps made them smile more than the rest of the world, was the fact that he was actually a track fan.
As one of the organisers of the event, he was an avid fan of the Olympic sports, and had seen some of the best races on the track.
The organisers of Rio 2016 told the media they had been able to catch up with the man, and he had told them the record had not been broken, that he had only just finished his training for the race, and that he would be waiting for his team in Rio.
This is why it’s so important to get out and enjoy the Games, says Andrew Murray, the managing director of the Olympics.
But he added that while this was a nice story, it was not quite the most inspiring, especially for someone like the man.
Andrew said that the track was not his favourite track, and while he enjoyed the running it would have been great if the people at the cafe had caught him.
He said the organisers were really looking forward to catching up with him.
“I’m sure they’ve had a blast.
It’s great to see the people who come here and the track is really exciting,” he said.
Andrew added that the cafe was not the only place where he had enjoyed watching the events unfold.
“There were a couple more venues that I’ve enjoyed, and I’ve just got to say I was in for an amazing experience,” he added.
