Isaiah Jewett wasn't about to hold a grudge after being tripped from behind by Nijel Amos of Botswana in the semifinals of the 800 meters at Tokyo2020. The 24-year-old American instead helped his rival to his feet and they finished the race together.
TOKYO (AP) — The runner who just tripped Isaiah Jewett from behind was sprawled out on the track next to him. Hurt or hard feelings? Just the opposite. The American 800-meter runner was a good sport.
Jewett has one simple rule when he’s racing: Finish. He made sure Amos did, too.“I’m super blessed because not a lot of people got to be here. I have to live in that moment, not the moment that just happened,” the 24-year-old runner from California said. “I’m able to go on to this stage and show you guys that this is me. That’s what I want to continue to do, to show who I am. If it wasn’t today, I’ll try again tomorrow. That’s not going to stop me from trying to be a hero.”
The friendly gesture was certainly appreciated by Amos.“You are all united by emotion,” he said. “We felt all the emotion when we went down. When we stood up and just tried … to get home.”There’s still a possibility that Jewett wins an appeal and advances to the final. But he may be banged up. He’s not sure yet. He did fell hard to the track and believes he hit his head.
“It’s adrenaline right now that I’m standing and able to run around,” Jewett said. “I felt a little bit of spikes on my legs. I’m still living. I’m still walking. That’s all anybody can ask for.”___More AP Olympics: https://apnews.com/2020-tokyo-olympics and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports headtopics.comRead more: The Associated Press »

The White Establishment Last time they blamed Lewis Hamilton when Vestapern drove into him causing his own crash Now they blame Amos for an American who tripped himself taking Amos down with him Am I seeing things? Jewett started falling because his back foot hit Amos BEHIND him. Amos got too close to his back kick. They did not cross line together. After jogging shoulder to shoulder Jewett ran ahead at finish line to finish 8th instead of 9th. Both should be in
