“I’m so proud of you” ????

WOW! What a great ten days of American Track and Field. I think I might still have goosebumps after that 1500 meter finish and also my neighbors might have heard me screaming, BRRRREEEEENNNNDDDDDAAA! when Brenda Martinez (after stumbling how many times?) threw herself over the line for third place in the 1500 meters and a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team. I mean, watch the video of the aftermath. Unbelievable.
But that wasn’t the only amazing moment. The rise of the indomitable and adorable Tori Bowie in the sprint events, Stephanie Garcia giving it EVERYTHING. SHE. HAD. in the steeple. Bernard Lagat closing in sub-53 in the 5,000 for the win and a trip to his fifth Olympic Games.
Now it’s your turn. Tell us:
What was the most inspiring moment of these Olympic Trials to you?
