A MARATHON runner is desperate to forget his latest win – after soiling himself during the race.

China’s Wu Xiangdong suddenly began to suffer from diarrhoea during the Shanghai half-marathon with over 6km to go.

And in a bid to win the 21km race, he relieved himself while on the run.

Wu admitted he felt “unwell” but kept going “until I achieved my mark”.

An embarrassed Wu, who was the quickest Chinese racer with a time of one hour, six minutes and 16 seconds, was quoted in in TODAYonline saying: “Even I couldn’t stand the smell.

“I kept running and didn’t stop (to go to the toilet because there weren’t any) and I wanted to beat the African runner at the finish.

BAD CASE OF THE RUNS

“I was really relieved when I crossed the finish line. It seemed I had more power after I excreted everything (during the race). I definitely would have run faster if I didn’t have this (episode).”

Wu thinks his diarrhoea could have come from wearing wet clothes.

He said: “Or it was because I only had a piece of bread and drank mineral water. I don’t think it was because of what I ate.”

Paula Radcliffe famously had to stop for a toilet break during the London Marathon in 2005 after her stomach reacted badly to her pre-race meal.

England legend Gary Lineker suffered the same embarrassment on the football pitch during a 1990 World Cup clash against Ireland.

Wu added: “It was a mighty relief to have had the toilet in the end. I don’t want to remember this race.”
