The Biggest Loser's Matt Hoover competing and finishing the Ford Ironman in Hawaii. An inspiration to all.
There's a saying that goes something along the lines of "The only time you should be looking down on someone is when you're helping them up".
No matter if you're a 8 hour finisher, or somebody like Matt that completed it in just a bit over the cutoff, every TRUE "Ironman" believes this. I don't think anybody on one of those courses would think twice about helping a fellow racer. Whether it be literally helping them up, or cheering them into the finish chute.
