WADR to Pat Summitt and what she did to elevate the women's game, Geno and UConn took it to another level entirely.

Best. Women's. Program. Ever.

The first kick she took was when she hit the ground...

It’s a real pity. I really hope she can overcome her issues. It seems pressure was overwhelming, but still, that’s her job after all. Wish her well.

Perhaps her employer (im assuming its a professional sport) should be providing more support to look after their number one assets

Kenyan runner Abel Mutai was only a few meters from the finish line, but got confused with the signs and stopped, thinking he had finished the race. BA Spanish man, Ivan Fernandez, was right behind him and, realizing what was going on, started shouting to the Kenyan to keep running. Mutai did not know Spanish and did not understand.

Realizing what was going on, Fernandez pushed Mutai to victory.

A reporter asked Ivan, "Why did you do this?" Ivan replied, "My dream is that one day we can have some sort of community life where we push ourselves and also others to win."

The reporter insisted "But why did you let the Kenyan win?" Ivan replied, "I didn't let him win, he was going to win. The race was his."

The reporter insisted and asked again, "But you could have won!" Ivan looked at him and replied: "But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honor of this medal? What would my Mother think of it?" The values are transmitted from generation to generation. What values do we teach our children and how much do you inspire others to earn? Most of us take advantage of people's weaknesses instead of helping to strengthen them.

Lovely story, but it's very old (not sure if you knew that, Jimmy?)

And why is there a pic of Mo Farah and ?? with the story? Just asking ... :)

Oh, didn't know! I haven't watched a minute of the Olympics this year. That story came across on my FB feed thought it was about this year Olympics. And pic came with the story. Wasn't trying to fool anyone.

I read that as "moi". I wondered why you were getting all pretentiously French and concluded it looked nothing like you. ;)
