Whoever was responsible for putting a slippery decal one yard before the finish line at the Chicago Marathon this weekend should be fired. The Kenyan who won the race, stepped onto that mat at the 26-mile-384-yard mark, slipped and fell and hit his head — without breaking the tape that marks the end of the race. Fortunately, his feet ended up under the tape and across the finish line, so he was declared the winner. Then he was taken to the hospital, where he’s expected to make a full recovery.
