It’s not often that runners become the talk of the internet but that’s exactly what happened when Reddit, a popular internet forum, got its hands on a photo of four elite distance runners.
The photo (from left to right) features Imane Merga (DQ), Bernard Lagat (silver), Dejen Gebremeskel (bronze), and Mo Farah (gold) competing in the 5,000m at the 2011 world championships in Daegu, South Korea.
Merga was disqualified for stepping on the curb of the track giving Gebremeskel an upgrade to bronze.
Canadian Running‘s favourites included an ice cream relay, Mo Farah’s reaction to a wedding dress, and the runners superimposed onto Mount Rushmore, just three of the hundreds of submissions on the thread started on Jan. 6.
