How many athletes had names that described what they do. Americans Trotter, Gait(lin), Miles. The amazing star in quickness and theater was Bolt from Jamaica. Another Muhammed Ali in the making. Such bravado. Wonder what if his name had been 'Pokey.'
I loved the rivalry between the long distance runners of Ethiopia and Kenya. Beautiful to watch their fluidity of form.
Maybe my newly acquired walking habit makes me a child in the universal athletic family, too. I'm not running, however I've learned to walk again. But oh, to show such grace while doing it.
