We don't want to give Kenyan runner Edwin Kipsang Rotich too much credit, because this race in Brazil over the weekend was a 10k, giving him plenty of time to make up for nearly getting bowled over by a spectator. His attacker was detained by police, who say he has a history of psychiatric problems and "has performed acts like these in the past." Not this specific act, presumably; that would add a whole new dimension to the distance races at the 2016 Olympics.
