Act of the day: Ukrainian after the finish went back for a fallen opponent

Поступок дня: украинка после финиша вернулась за упавшей соперницей

Natalia Prishchepa helped the opponent to get the finish.

Ukrainian athlete Natalia Prischepa demonstrated genuine sportsmanship during his run in qualifying for the continental championship-2018 in Berlin.

Prischepa finished first in his race and qualified to the semi-finals, but instead of celebrating she returned to the track for the Belgian Rene Aikens that fell on cross-country

The Belgian was so upset about the fall that I started crying right on track, but Ukrainian Prishchepa went back after the finish, the applause of the audience helped his opponent to get up and finish the race.

Some good sportsmanship from reigning European 800m champion Nataliya Pryshchepa. 👍#EC2018
