In honor of today's 5k:50 stunning Olympic moments No 41: Emil Zatopek the triple-gold winner
I was going to cut and paste something out of this but there are so many great stories in one short article I don't know what to choose. Maybe this:
Also on the Czech team in London was the javelin thrower Dana Ingrova, who finished seventh. She happened to be precisely Zatopek's age, both having been born on 19 September 1922. They knew each other already but the relationship blossomed in London, where they passed time playing a long-distance, high-stakes game of catch using her javelin. He bought two gold rings from a shop in Piccadilly Circus. "So, we were both born on the same day," he told her. "What if, by chance, we were also to get married on the same day?"
Och, but Angus, ye ken full well that Scots folk dinna know how to play the tennis to save their lives!
Lithuania just hit a 3 to go up two with 6 to go. Now up 2 with 5:45 to go.
Some pretty terrible defense by USA throughout. That and poor three point shooting have made this one a barn burner.
EDIT: US pulls away after finally hitting some threes.
EDIT 2: Changed title to cover all Olympics for the day.
And how about Serena making Sharapova look silly?
Well looks like Tyler Clary isn't impressed with Micheal Phelps. I can't say that his opinion is wrong, just not sure this is the best time/forum to voice an opinion.
