This is the amazing moment when a teenage runner who broke her leg during a relay marathon, finished the race on her hands and knees.
Rei Iida, 19, fell and fractured her leg with just 200 yards to go of her 2.2mile stage of a relay marathon in Fukoka, Japan.
Despite what would have been a painful injury, the university student was determined to finish her stretch of the race.

Sheer lunacy! She might have caused permanent damage. This just shows how ridiculous athletes are, totally brainless.

Incredible well done lady! But she should have stopped. If you break a leg and continue to use it, it can do irreparable damage
