Cyclist Refuses To Pass Fellow Competitor Who Had Suffered Punctured Tire
It's the Christmas season, which I assume they celebrate in Spain (when they're not torturing bulls), so I thought that I'd show you this. At the Santa Barbara XV Grand Prix cycling race in Cantabria, Spain last week, Ismael Esteban was cruising toward the finish line in third place, when he suffered a puncture in one of his tires.
So, evidently in cycling you can just pick up your bike and run toward the finish, which Esteban attempted. But it was slow going, and another cyclist, Agustin Navarro, soon caught up. He could have blown by Esteban and collected that shiny bronze medal, but instead he slowed down, refusing to pass his rival.
"I didn't want to win that way," Navarro said. After the race, Esteban tried to give the bronze to Navarro, but he refused it. "To overtake him just before the finish line would have been unethical."
This is exactly what Martin Shkreli would have done, except instead of refusing to pass his rival, he would have made sure to ride through a big puddle as he zoomed by.
