Winners of Loss - Nr. 4 depicts a track and field youth competition at Fana Stadium, but the motives deviate from what is normally considered important. Instead of the athletes we are shown details such as the food being sold by the track (chocolate cake, waffles, hot dogs, coffee and soda), senior citizen volunteers raking the sand after each long jump and the officials flipping the number plates of the throwing and jumping exercises.

Winners of Loss - Nr. 4 The Competitors (2014) depicts a track and field youth competition at Fana Stadium.
We see several athlete's exhaustion after the race. The disappointment over a poor time or placement or the ecstatic joy when beating a personal best or winning a race. The coaches and parents extending an arm of encouragement on the young athlete's shoulders.
