The China Hurdler

I don’t know if you got a chance to see this today but at the Olympics a Chinese hurdler tore his Achilles in the race. He started to leave the track but then decided to finish the race – having obviously lost – by hopping the rest of the way. It was a classy finish and the stadium and his fellow athletes, who met him at the finish line, appreciated the effort. I am embedding a link to buzzfeed here. The full video is at the bottom of their page after clips of the video which they use to tell the story. It is one of the classic moments of this Olympics.

    Yeah, it was one of those really nice moments that capture what an Olympics is really all about. That and I like the fact the Saudi women got so much support.
