Should you strive to win at any cost? This high-end Kenyan athlete was able not only to win but to touch the hearts of people all over the globe.


Meet Jacqueline Nytepi Kiplimo. She is a marathoner and has won many medals in all kinds of prestige competitions. However, winning at all costs is not her motto. A while ago she was participating in a marathon in China. The runner was about to win and take the first place.

However, on her way to the golden medal she stopped to help a disabled man. She has seen him running hard. The Chinese had no hands, and he was getting thirsty and dehydrated. He had no means of reaching for the bottle of water, opening it and getting a sip.


So, she stopped to do that for him. As the result, she was second to finish the run. She has lost gold to silver, but her brave and kind act has become an example for millions of people around the globe. Comment and share this touching story!
