Inspirational moment: Kenyans showing great teamwork in marathon

Fourth-Place Medal

The marathon features individual performances of endurance, but two runners from Kenya showed remarkable teamwork during Sunday's women's marathon. Near the 10km mark (6.2 miles), Edna Kiplagat wasn't able to grab a bottle from the water station. Her teammate Mary Keitany was, so the pair found a simple solution. They shared their water bottle.

It seems like such a small gesture, but remember these women are fighting for an Olympic gold medal. Instead of taking advantage of Kiplagat, Keitany offered her fellow Kenyan a hand.
