10,000m running may be considered an individual sport but Australian athletes Celia Sullohern, Madeline Hills and Eloise Wellings rebuked this notion when they demonstrated the ultimate act of ‘team playing’ and sportsmanship. During this year’s Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast, Lineo Chaka, representing the southern African nation of Lesotho, ran the last few laps of the women's 10,000 metres five minutes behind the winner Chesang and three minutes behind the runner in front of her.
