Blincoe & Curtis DNF in Birmingham 5000



The video above shows the final 3000 of the Birmingham 5000. At about the two-mile mark, Blincoe was clipped from behind and tweaked his knee -- not sure how serious the issue might be, but Blincoe went down on his back on the track, seemingly in real pain. The race video shows perhaps 3 or 4 instances of bumping, shoving, and runners being knocked off stride. Bobby Curtis's, who was a bit detached from the lead group, dropped out at the 10:00 mark of the race, seemingly without incident.
