#Beijing: Smoking is harmful to health. But there are some people who are not affected by this warning. This man from China is one of them. He ran for about three and a half hours with a continuous cigarette in his mouth. His act of running a marathon has taken the internet by storm. However, he is also criticized on social media.
A report in The Mirror wrote about the man. The man said he was a year-old runner. He is known as Uncle Chen. He ran in the Giande Marathon. He continued to smoke throughout the entire 26.2 mile run. He was smoking one cigarette after another while running.
According to the New York Post, the man is addicted to copper. He finished the race in 3 hours 28 minutes and 45 seconds. According to a certificate posted on Weibo, Uncle Chen ranked 574th out of about 1,500 runners.
His number of fans on social media is not less. He finished the race smoking. Other runners, however, have complained against him. According to them, that person has set a bad example. He also damaged the lungs of other runners.
According to the New York Post, this is not Chen’s first marathon run! He finished the Guangzhou race in 2018 in 3 hours 36 minutes. In 2019, Xiamen finished the marathon in 3 hours 32 minutes. Smoking doesn’t just hinder his performance, it enhances it, or so he is keen to prove time and time again.
