Slaves Forced to Run Marathon Shoeless in Qatar

In Qatar, where at least one immigrant worker dies per day working to complete its World Cup infrastructure by 2022, workers were bused in to run a marathon in whatever clothes they had in order to break a Guinness World Record.

In an effort to break a Guinness World Record, a Qatari sports club reportedly bused in migrant workers and forced them to run in a state-sponsored “megamarathon” in Doha last Friday.
