Meghan Vogel might have won the state title for the 1600 meter race, but the track star received more attention for her extraordinary act of kindness toward her fellow competitor. The Ohio teen observed competitor, Arden McMath, fall just meters from the finish line. Meghan quickly rushed to her aid, carrying the fallen runner to the end of the track, where she guided her across the finish line - ahead of herself. The teens finished in 14th and 15th place, but the crowd, touched by the scene, gave the pair a standing ovation. Meghan Vogel is a true hero in every sense of the word!
