I ran track. Cross country (this was a mile) runners are in each others' way all the time. Technically if someone is in front of you you have to go around them, period.

My understanding was the offender was just wandering across the track and not in the race. Notice that he was smart enough to stay away from the shot put, hammer, and javelin competition.

100 bucks says he was purposely trying to get in the white kids way.

My guess is black kid meandering across track in the middle of race, white kid tells him to move. Black kid decides to stand in track on next lap, white kid pushes him out of the way, next lap black kid goes for the sucker punch.

Guaranteed response by black kid supporters. They will come out saying on the first lap, the white kid called him the N word. They will try to destroy the white kid with lies.

Apparently he was standing on the track and got mad when the White lead runner called him out.

Netflix will make a movie about him being the hero

The black kid will be played by a gay handicapped tranny in a wheelchair, the evil white racist runs up to him and calls him the N word then hit him for no reason at all.

The puncher was NOT in the race.

He wasn’t running. Just being a cunt lurking on the track interfering with runners. If the kid had to push him out of the way he was standing on the track

Does that apply to people who are not in the race?

Good point, still catching up on comments

The family has a great lawsuit. The race organizers are supposed to keep the non competitors off the field. If some jerk off is wandering in front of you, you could push him. It's a competition after all, he's affecting your time. Even having to push him costs you time and energy.

Technically never happened.

Elbows, kidney punches from waving arms, and kicking people's legs behind their other one happened all the time.

Cross Country was worse, because there were stretches with no spectators. We had the rattlesnake, two half inch spikes on the toe to be run down the back of someone's calf or flat tire someone.

It's a contact sport. However, unless you're a jogger you're smart enough to hide it better than this.

Apparently he wasn't even a racer. Looking at the pictures he doesn't have a number. Just an entitled jogger who thinks he should be able to wander onto the field.

Wonder if he'd try the same on a basketball court?

A kid was pushing guys during a cross country race when I was in middle school. So I ran ahead and put the guy on his ass in a ditch. After the race, my friend was laughing and telling everyone what I did and one of the kid's coaches heard and his eyes lit up and he had me point the kid out. The coach furiously grabbed the kid to discipline him... You know... Like in reality, not clown world.

Everyone involved was white so there were actual consequences for poor actions.

Regular track running isn't a contact sport though. Those track and field judges are generally hardcore about rule violations. I have seen plenty of disqualifications via barely a toe stepping out of the lane all the way to people shoulder and elbow checking. This assault could not be construed as a simple fly by contact hit, the runner sorta jumped to strike the head.

Yeah. If it had been a grass track, nothing like a set of long grass spikes embedded and then raked out of a sensitive part of the leg. And that's just between competitors jockeying for position. Synthetic track spikes were nothing, compared to those monsters.

I'm surprised they even gave him one lap grace. In many of my races, it was see and be hit.
