Here is one of the most inspiring moments that happened at Olympic Games this year. 
 

Yesterday, runners Abbey D’Agostino (USA) and Nikki Hamblin (New Zealand) left the world touched during the women’s 5,000-meter event in Rio

Somewhere around 3,2000 meters, the D’Agostino and Hamblin collided

Bringing them both to the ground

As Hamblin was getting up, she noticed D’Agostino was hurt and needed help

“When I went down it was like, ‘what’s happening? Why am I on the ground?’ Hamblin said

“And suddenly there’s this hand on my shoulder, like ‘get up, get up, we have to finish this!’

“I’m so grateful for Abbey for doing that for me. I mean, that girl is the Olympic spirit right there.”

“I’m so impressed and inspiring that she did that. I’ve never met her before. Like, I’ve never met this girl before. And isn’t that just so amazing?”

The best part? Even though the girls came in last, they still got moved to the finals
