Dog Keeps Up With Athletes, Gets Adopted

On a meal break, they noticed a stray dog who was in pretty bad shape. They fed him a meatball. And the dog followed for six days - swimming, kayaking, struggling through mud. They named the dog Arthur, and when they all finished the race together, no way they could leave him behind. One of the athletes adopted him. Arthur had found a home in Sweden.
