WATCH: That’s What I’m Talking About: Japanese Woman Runner Who Broke Her Leg Crawls to Complete Her Relay Marathon Stage After Falling With 200 Yards to Go

This is the amazing moment when a teenage runner who broke her leg during a relay marathon, finished the race on her hands and knees.

Rei Iida, 19, fell and fractured her leg with just 200 yards to go of her 2.2mile stage of a relay marathon in Fukoka, Japan.

Despite what would have been a painful injury, the university student was determined to finish her stretch of the race.

Video footage shows Ms Iida crawling on the tarmac as fast as her broken leg can carry her, with volunteers and bystanders cheering her on.

She appears determined to continue, despite sustaining injuries to her hands and knees, and leaving a train of blood on the road behind her.

With her team-mate reportedly waiting for her in tears to take over the sash, Ms Iida made it to the end with blood pouring out of her knees.
