Sanya Richards was supposed to win the gold medal in the women’s 400 meters competition in Beijing. Richards had licked the unusual illness, Behcet’s syndrome to solidify herself as the favorite.
For most of the race, Richards appeared headed to the gold medal spot on the winner’s platform. But at 320 meters, she knew her hamstring “grabbed up” on her. Somehow, she managed to not only finish the race, but end up in third for the bronze. Most athletes would be happy with that finish, but not when you’re expected to brink back the gold.
The classy Richards consented to an interview with NBC following her defeat, and she told a global audience that the race wasn’t about Sanya Richards, but about our country, one that she’s very proud of.
Even in her despair and depression, in her lowest of moments, she found it in her soul to express love for the United States. Compare that to Mrs. Barack Obama who didn’t feel proud of the U.S. until her husband gained fame. Compare that to Barack Obama, who finds it difficult to express even a modicum of patriotism.
Even if Obama is victorious in November, he’ll never be the winner Sanya Richards is.
