Ohmygosh. Felix Sanchez. This guy made me cry when he cried….
At the Beijing Olympics, the morning of the preliminary heat, he got the news that his grandma had died. He ran, but ended up doing horribly. He cried the whole day. He vowed that he would win a medal for her before he retired. And today in London, he won the gold. That picture on the ground is of himself and his grandma.
He ran with the photo of the two of them pinned on the inside of his race number.Source: hopefully-happy
