In the midst of a cross country race, your extremely tired and here comes the last 400m or so. You dont want to lose to the guy behind you and hopefully want to pass the person in front. You put on this final sprint and use every last bit of energy you have. This is definately the hardest moment in ALL of sports. It takes mental, physical and spiritual strength to give it your all in these last 400m. It can be the difference maker.
I was coming around the last straightaway of the race, holding onto first place, but the guy behind me put on the final sprint and beat me
