Eyob Faniel Wins Venice Marathon After Lead Runners Are Lead Astray

Sports

In a shocking, perhaps hilarious (frustrating definitely for some of the runners) incident that took place yesterday, a local runner called Eyob Faniel won the Venice marathon after the leading pack of 6 racers was lead onto the wrong route by one of the escorts. Eyob kept running on the same route and the small misunderstanding was enough for him to clinch the victory. In the process, Eyob became the first Italian to win the Venice marathon in 22 years.

Below is the bizarre and funny incident in videos.
