                                   The Best Thing We Shared Today


  • At the World Athletics Championships earlier today, the women’s 10,000m was won by Vivian Cheruiyot. But there was plenty of drama for the bronze medal.

Remember folks: never raise your hands in celebration BEFORE you cross the line.            Because it may just go horribly wrong.

                                                  On The Record

“There’s not a day I wake up and do not pinch myself, and be grateful for everything in my life. I knew everything would happen. You always hear, ‘I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it’, but I could believe it and I did believe it. That’s why it happened,”
