Kenyan runner gets tackled by fan during 10K race, still wins (Video)

Over the years, we've posted some pretty strange sports moments here on Outside the Boxscore but this the first time that we have a video showing a man disrupting a race by tackling the leader.

It happened during a 10K run in Brazil as Kenyan runner Edwin Kipsang was pulling away from his opponents and seemed to be in the clear.

That was until 33-year old Wallace de Sousa Nogueira attempted to tackle Kipsang to the ground but was stopped by police officers on motorcycles:

After the bizarre moment, Kipsang continued his trek and claimed first place.
