In two of the images you'll see Gordy Barr lying on the ground 50 feet from the finish line. He writes the monthly Middle Bass column for the Put-in-Bay Gazette and sends the following message to all his fans: "I was sleeping peacefully by the side of the road and all these people kept pouring water on me and covering me in ice. All those Middle Bass pranksters! Seriously, I am fine. Thanks to all my friends for their support and the quick and able response of our island EMS! I suffered simple heat exhaustion. A 21-year-old brain was pushing a 51-year-old body. Thanks everyone. I love you guys too!"
