My new hero

Leo Manzano.
From USA today

What heart! After his gutsy qualifying performances I knew from the very start of the 1500 he'd be on the podium. Here's a guy with more skill, talent, and soul than built-in ability (He's only 5'5"). It's such a pleasure to watch him race!


  1. It was an awesome race! My 7 yr old ran the 1500m this year in track - he wasn't awake, but I taped the race for him.

  2. Amazing performance by him! I thought it was going to be Centrowitz getting a medal not Manzano, props to him!!

  3. ugh! I missed that race. I'll have to see if I can catch a repeat of it On Demand.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

  4. loved his burst at the end-brill

  5. Oh agreed! When I saw him near the back of the pack at the start of the last lap I was so sad, and then to watch him was awesome!!! He has so much heart. :)

  6. Looks like a great race...I missed it so I'll have to see if I can view it online!

  7. ...also I had to pick a few bloggers to tag for a thing. You got picked! (lucky)

  8. yes.
    you've been tagged. ;)

  9. i watched him run - so great to see him come 'from nowhere' to medal!

    (and it's niece that he runs for the country he trains in unlike some other olympians of all sports *cough farah*)

    1. wow good spelling lindsay. nice. not niece.
