Among the marathon runners in the capital of Britain, he was very excited. Even so, the British BBC noted it. Lukas Bates completed the entire race in London's famous Big Ben outfit. But just before the goal, he had to face a major and unexpected problem.
The thirty-year-old Brit in his tall suit struck the target's bow and, as he wished, the low bow did not let him go. So it seemed that the end of the race for Bates might have produced an insurmountable obstacle.
Fortunately, one of the volunteers appeared nearby, helping the "giant Big Ben" reach the finish line. And despite the final problem, Bates did not have bad weather. He finished the marathon in 3 hours and 54 minutes.
According to the driver, his best performance in the marathon is always 2 hours 59 minutes – but when he is not dressed like a giant landmark in London.
Other pilots also attracted attention
But Bates was not the only one wearing the suit. Many other participants also wore colorful clothing for various reasons. For example, a photographer named Dave Lock with a huge green phone fancy lost the viewfinder of the photograph.
Many of them were attracted to the older woman on the track. Eileen Noble finished her marathon in 6 hours and 28 minutes in an impressive 84 years of age.
The race, which was attended by some 43,000 runners, was won by Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge.
