Three Great Finishes This Week (Videos)

Wow, this was a great week for awesome finishes! In case you missed them, check these out:

At the Triathlon World Series finale in Mexico, race leader (and Series leader at the time) Johnny Brownlee hit the wall in the last half mile and almost lost consciousness. His brother, 2-time Gold Medalist Alistair Brownlee, sacrificed his chance to win to get his brother across the finish.

At the inaugural XTERRA Pan Am Championships in Ogden, Utah, the race came down to a sprint down the final chute with American Josiah Middaugh outstretching New Zealand's Braden Currie by 7/100th of a second to take the title. (sprint trail run finish at 5:56 in the video)

The indefatigable Karl Meltzer conquered the 3,524-kilometer Appalachian Trail in record time, burning over 340,000 calories in 45 days, 22 hours, and 38 minutes. Way to go, Karl! (sorry if the video isn't embedding...CNN always has trouble with this, so just go to the page if it doesn't work)
