Spanish long-distance runner showed exemplary sportsmanship last December when he helped a confused rival finish before him. Iván Fernández Anaya was in second place to Olympic bronze medalist Abel Mutai in a race in Navarre, Spain, when he noticed the Kenyan runner stop about 30 feet from the finish line. Mutai thought he had completed the race — and couldn't understand the crowd telling him to keep going in Spanish. Rather than speed past Mutai, Anaya guided him ahead to the actual finish. "I did what I had to do," he said. "He was the rightful winner."
