Team USA's Ryan Hall dropped out of the 2012 Olympic Marathon around mile 11 Sunday morning, an obviously disappointing result for the owner of the fastest time ever run by an American. And considering he's never really had a bad marathon, seeing him step off the course was especially shocking.
But maybe no one was more shocked than Hall himself, as he told NBC:
Abdihakem Abdirahman followed with a DNF of his own, just moments after Hall, leaving Meb Keflezighi as the only American still running. At the 25km mark, he was 1:49 off the lead, in 14th place.
