Video: Wesley Frazier breaks the national girls' record in the 5000 in the final turn

Bookmark and Share

How shocking was Wesley Frazier's national record-setting, split-second victory in the New Balance National Indoor Track championships?

So much that the announcer, whether oblivious or in denial, never once recognized Frazier as the actual winner. Instead, as you can see from the video below, he's dead-set on Erin Finn of Michigan having broken her own national record.

Some of the (botched) commentary includes:

"Wesley Frazier with a STRONG second place finish. Great performance."
"Those of you who stuck with it saw Erin Finn do it again! This time after being sick all week... second national record for Erin Finn."

Below is the link, but advance the video to the 16:10 mark, where Frazier (red top with No. 1) will come into the screen shortly thereafter and burst past Finn (light blue top with No. 8). We also warn you to turn down the volume.
