Just because it’s awesome

snapshot_20160817_090950U.S. Olympic runner Ajee’ Wilson finished in second place in her 800-meter semifinal race, and then waited to greet the last-place finisher, Houleye Ba of Mauritania, as she crossed the finish line.

I don’t know. There are a lot of Moments at this Olympics, and for me, this is one of those.

  1. I read about USA’s Abbey D’Agostino and New Zealand’s Nikki Hamblin helping each other recover and finish the 5000m run after getting tripped up.
    I thought that was pretty cool, too.

      There were a lot of moments. I was also struck by how competitors seemed to be friends, or new friends. There were lots of smiles and hugs between teams after races.
