lorianaobiefo: The GWR was created to strictly hold a pedestal of value, if they accept everything, it will collapse and not inspire future generations to attempt breaking records.

kim556231: Only a dysfunctional country turns everything to a joke. The leaders have failed them so they become irritated with decency.
fnprincekay: So you actually expected GWR to sit and be watching a full grown man crying for hours when there are great records in the world people are attempting that they’ve not checked 😂.
