London Olympics Day 8
Day 8 at the Olympics proved to be a historic day at the track, with Oscar Pistorius becoming the first double-amputee runner to compete in the Games. It was an amazing site to see as “Blade Runner” as he is called, lined up in the blocks to run against 7 other athletes with legs. It truly was one of the more inspirational sites I have seen in sports. It really does prove that despite the many odds that may be stacked against you, that you can still persevere and realize your goals and dreams. For me, it was also the first page one shot of mine from the Olympics in the New York Times, which I was very excited about.It was also a huge day for the Brits at the track, as they collected three golds that day, the biggest by Jessica Ennis in the heptathlon And Mo Farah in the 10000m.
