Your story is slightly wrong. He might've won, but the times on the board are not for that race. First off, he's in lane 6 and the board is showing 8 lanes. Secondly, if you time the race, it only took about 17-18 seconds, versus the 30-45 seconds shown on the board. The board times are from the previous race and had not been updated yet, most likely. I just thought it was a bit deceiving and might need to be corrected.
