Although visibly injured from the fall, both runners end up completing the heat, with Hamblin taking second to last place and D'Agostino taking last place, according to a report by ESPN. On the bright side, both runners automatically qualified for the 5,000-meter final race on Friday night on account of having been tripped. However, it's unclear how well D'Agostino will run with the knee injury she suffered in the fall.
"I am so grateful to Abbey for helping me,'' Hamblin said, per the report. "That girl was the Olympic spirit right there. I am so impressed and inspired by that.''
So, while many athletes will be judged by how many gold medals they'll win in Rio, perhaps the best measure of an Olympian is how well they fail.
