This is what the Olympics should be about.


Quote:
In a brilliant example of competitive respect and appreciation for hard work, several of the athletes who finished before Madrazo waited and cheered him on to the finish. Even the gold-medal winner, Dario Cologna, stood clapping as the group hoisted Madrazo onto their shoulders and walked him off the track as if he was an undersized linebacker for Notre Dame who just sacked the quarterback.

My son was a pole vaulter in High school. The pole vault was my favorite event because of the way the parents acted. While the kids were competing it was like a big family. Each kid was applauded for a good effort regardless of whether he won or if he was on their team. It was always golden.

This story reminds me of that.
