Congratulations to the quartet of Sanya Richards, Dee Dee Trotter, Francena McCorory and Allyson Felix who destroyed the competition in the 4x400m relay to claim Olympic Gold!!
Sometimes, only by ones good fortune, you find yourself in the company of royalty, okay, track royalty. As a C.I.F. track official in the California Southern Section, I witnessed a slender 10th grader from L.A. Baptist H.S., who's teammates had nicknamed her "chicken legs", step on the track an dazzle for the next three years. Over that stretch of time, she broke 100 &200m records everywhere she ran, capping off her high school career by setting the national high school record in 200 meters that remains today.
For us who followed the progress of ALLYSON FELIX from those H.S. days as "chicken legs", to her blossoming into the gracious, humble, yet tenacious competitor she has become as world and Olympic champion; we are left with a wonderful sense of pride for her in our hearts.
Congratulation Allyson on your three Gold Medals and World Record in the 2012 Olympics. You wear a deserved crown well as the worlds finest female sprinter and one of the worlds finest athletes!!
