→ I Have Trouble Running 400m on Two Healthy Legs

Pat Forde on Manteo Mitchell running on a broken leg during yesterday’s 4×400 qualifying:

“I knew if I finished strong we could still get it [the baton] around,” Mitchell said. “I saw Josh Mance motioning me in for me to hand it off to him, which lifted me. I didn’t want to let those three guys down, or the team down, so I just ran on it. It hurt so bad. I’m pretty amazed that I still split 45 seconds on a broken leg.”

Talk about giving the extra effort for your teammates.
