The first day of the XXX Summer Olympiad of the modern Games is over. Day 2 will begin in several hours. I am sitting, in my living room in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, washing some clothes and doing some final writing before I head to London.
Part of the story, for me, is the challenges that athletes overcome to make it to the starting line. Every athlete who makes an Olympic team has an amazing story.
We have added links back to the World Champs in 2007, 2005, 2003, 2001 and the 2004 Olympics. The result links do not work, as those sites have gone far, far away, however, the stories are all there. The stories of men and women who took on challenges to run, jump and throw.
More to come.
