The video below is the quintessential warning for a host of human endeavors from law school exams to marriage: stay on the path and don’t make unplanned turns. In a heartbreaking moment, Natsuki Terada had pulled ahead in a marathon and was just about to win when he made the wrong turn. You can watch what happened.
Terada was just 200 feet from the finish line when he followed a camera truck. It turned out the camera truck was getting out of the way for the pictures at the finish line. Terada was competing for Kokugakuin University in the Hakone Ekiden relay marathon event between Tokyo and Hakone.
