I LOVE THE OLYMPICS!
So many inspirational stories and events!
I wanted to share what I feel is the greatest story of the Olympics this year so far.
The USA Mens 4x100m swim relay team has been badgered by the FRANCE team at all previous competitions. Then France had to go and say that they would "smash" the USA in the race. It was the fuel for the fire as the last leg of the race Jason Lezak (who even the announcers were trashing) came from behind to win by .08 of a second. AMAZING! They beat the last World Record by 5 seconds with a finish time of 3:08.24.
Great things are accomplished with team work and relentless desire!
notice the announcers...what chumps!
