OLYMPIC TRIALS - PART II
OK - I got my camera photos developed today. They are a "bit better" than my Blackberry shots (like all photos hosted on my blog, they can be viewed in more detail by simply clicking them).
EVENTUAL WINNER RYAN HALL WALKING TO START
LEAD PACK RUNNING DOWN CENTRAL PARK
HALL'S BREAKWAY ON FINAL LAP (NOTE THE ABSENCE OF ANY OTHER RUNNERS BEHIND HIM IN VIEW)
RITZ ON HIS WAY TO 2ND PLACE
SELL ON HIS WAY TO 3RD AND THE FINAL OLYMPIC TEAM SPOT (WHAT AN AWESOME RACE HE RAN - TO PICK OFF THOSE IN FRONT OF HIM IN THE LAST 2 LAPS)
KHALID WITH HIS 4TH PLACE FINISHING LAP
OLYMPIC SILVER MEDALIST MARATHONER MEB FINISHING THE TRIALS
SELL POST-RACE WITH HIS TEAM'S FLAG
KHALID AND SOME UGLY GUY
MEB AND SOME UGLY GUY
UGLY GUY AND ABDI
UGLY GUY AND SELL
HALL....THINKING "IF I HAD ONLY RUN A 2:07, I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE AVOIDED THIS UGLY GUY"
