Olympic Shout Out #15



Dear Sanya.

Forget the Redeem team. You got your own shot at redemption from one race to the next without having to stew on it for four years. Maybe the individual 400 meter didn't go exactly as you'd planned, and the 4X100 meter relay was a baton-dropping disaster. But here you come in the women's 4X400-meter relay and you totally put it on the line and grind out a victory, blazing past Anastasia Kapachinskaya from Russia in the final straight away. You got your team to the top of the podium! You got to hear the national anthem ring loud throughout the stadium. Good on you! It was an amazing effort!

Hugs,
Owen
