ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- A photo captured over the weekend shows a local athlete demonstrating the best of competition.
The picture is from a state championship cross country meet, and showed a John Burroughs runner helping his competition from Lutheran St. Charles finish the race by lending a hand, despite it impacting his own chances of winning.
Due to the normal wear and tear of running and high temperatures for the month of November, Noah McMullen from Lutheran St. Charles was struggling to make it to the finish line.
"I was feeling good at about the four-kilometer mark," said McMullen. "Then my legs started burning and my vision started going away. I just couldn't stay up any longer."
