Run in such a way...

American Wallace Spearmon (Last from left) crossed the line in third place in 19.95 but was disqualified for running out of his lane and team-mate Shawn Crawford, who ran 19.96 was promoted to the bronze medal.
He was celebrating along with Bolt — even picking up his friend — carrying the American flag around the track for several minutes after the race and was shocked when an official told him of the DQ. Spearmon’s shocking disqualification, courtesy of the Associated Press.

As we have just now come out of Olympic fever, Spearmon is one of the 200 mts finalist whom I remember. Having practiced so hard for four years, spending his time, energy, and money for this one great moment, and finally disqualified ??!!! How would you react to that???
He was literally dancing and leaping with joy only to hear from an official that he was Disqualified. He ran hard, he finished the race but in vain. He didn't run in a way he will get the price. Paul says “Run in such a way as to get the prize” 1 Corinthians 9:24. We all run a race. There will be a final day on which we will receive the prize not from men but from God Himself. So Run in such a way as to get the prize. Spearmon was disqualified because he crossed his lane. A slight overstepping cost him the race. So, let us be careful not to cross the limits and boundaries that God has set for us.
