Wilson Kipsang set a new world record at the Berlin Marathon, finishing the race Sunday in 2 hours 3 minutes 23 seconds, knocking 15 seconds off the mark set two years ago by fellow Kenyan Patrick Makau.

With that in mind, you might be surprised to learn that Kipsang wasn't the first person across the finish line in Berlin.

That honor went to a sleazy escort-site promoter who jumped onto the track for the final few steps. This man stayed just ahead of Kipsang and managed to beat him to the tape. The stunt is disgraceful in any setting, but especially unfortunate here considering that Kipsang was about to set a new record.
