The final stretch of the boys AAA Race at the McQuaid Invitational.
- - -
This weekend at the McQuaid Invitational in Rochester, New York, fans witnessed one of the best kick of the week races yet this season. The Boys AAA seeded race had a sneak attack for the win.
In the final 200m stretch of the course, runners have along straightaway to the finish line. With a little more than 100m to go it looked like Guilderland's (NY) Sean O'Brien was going to take the win - even the announcer was announcing him as the winner coming down the home stretch.
Then all of a sudden Frontier's (NY) Joshua Peron hit the gas hard. Peron came from 40m back to fly by O'Brien almost unnoticed. It wasn't until the last second O'Brien noticed and was able to respond but by then it was too late. Peron would steal the win in the final 5-10 meters winning in 15:21.10. Peron came in second in 15:21.60.
