This is what the olympics is all about! This is old fashioned American patriotism that makes you proud to be from the U.S. And this is absolutely the kind of athlete you want to represent America, to the world.
This kid is remarkable, to say the least. Give this video of Sam Kendricks, pole vaulter, a watch. It will bring a tear to your eye.
If only more people had this kind of respect for our nation.
This may just be the most memorable moment of the 2016 Summer Olympics.
