[Editor’s Note: We sincerely apologize that we were unable to capture video of Christelle Bard’s finish. It was pouring rain and we had just one member of our team on the finish line as she finished. We could not safely keep two cameras (for both still and video images) out of the weather. Thank you for your understanding!]
