#shirtstorm-The Video



There has been some talk by the parties involved, a little more has been written around the circumstances of the Spartan Atlanta elite awards ceremony, and, like any controversial topic in the OCR community, there has been an abundance of speculation.

OCR award ceremonies are typically not attended by thousands or even hundreds. They happen 3-4 hours after the race happened and it’s safe to say, many aren’t even aware they are happening.

How fortunate is it for us that one Michael Obayelu caught this video of the award ceremony so we can stop speculating and watch.

We are not going to give you our opinion on this event. We want you to watch and give us yours.

Editor’s Note – #shirtstorm should not be confused with #shirtgate, another recent story covered by ORM.
