Olympic runners collide, then help each other finish race

Both Abbey D'Agostino of the United States and Nikki Hamblin of New Zealand were involved in a collision during a women’s 5000m round 1 race. D’Agostino immediately helped Hamblin get back up, only to realize that she herself was injured. Hamblin then returned the favor and stayed behind to make sure D'Agostino could stay on her feet. D’Agostino limped around the track to finish the race, and was greeted by a hug from Hamblin and a wheelchair. Both runners will advance to the 5,000m final and the Olympic spirit is alive and well.
