Finish line photo of Bernard Lagat and Mo Farah
Leave it to the good people over at reddit (I couldn’t not write a post about this) to take an epic picture and make it epic-er. They got their hands on this finish line photo of Bernard Lagat and Mo Farah and went to work.
Here is the original picture.
First, a bit of background on the photo.
The original picture comes from the 5k finals at the 2011 IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea where Mo Farah just nipped Bernard Lagat for gold. The top three finished within .56 seconds of each other.
Farah went on to get silver in the 10,000m a few days later.
Check out the 5k race. This was the start of Farah’s dominance. A year later, he won Olympic Gold in the 5k and 10k and has been unstoppable in global championships since.
The last two laps are crazy!
Okay, enough about the race. The internet saw this picture and decided it was ripe for a photoshop battle. Here are some of my favorites.
Transformers, Mad Maxx, Jurrasic Park…what? Lagat outrunning them all.
So much goodness.
The Supreme Leader is no match for Lagat.
Always better with a shirtless Vlad.
Sorry Lagat but this crown goes to Mo Farah.
I don’t know what to say about this one. It’s terrifying, but I can’t stop looking. It’s so wrong, yet so right.
Age is just a number. Don’t retire guys!
Must be the only reason Farah was able to win this one.
Next level stuff. However, in all seriousness, if there was a Mt Rushmore for American distance runners, then Lagat is probably on it.
Obligatory Star Wars picture.
Farah does love a stylish wedding dress.
Okay enough of all this, we have things to do. Good job internet, you win again.
