Mathew Orlov carried out the impromptu op when he realised the dead creature was pregnant. He said he knew something was wrong when he reeled in the 2.7 metre [8ft 8in] sevengill shark from waters off the coast of Barwon Heads, Victoria, Australia. The experienced angler claims it was fatally attacked by another predator after he hooked it and it was already dead by the time he reeled it in.

She elected against pouring water over her head to cool herself down because she did not want to get her shoes wet. And she embraced the notion that a rookie marathoner could finish in less than four hours.“When the gun went off, I decided to run faster than I’d run in training, because that’s super smart,” she … [Read more...] about Runners know even the best-laid Boston Marathon plans can go off-course
