GODS OF ATHLETICS: Nick Symmonds, Gold Medalist, 800 m., 2010 USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships

I was absently watching on cable the last 2010 US Outdoor Track & Field Championships held at the Drake University grounds in Des Moines when the 800 meter event suddenly gripped my full attention. The US recordholder Nick Symmonds was behind the pack at the start but as soon as they passed the halfway mark, he showed who was the real champion & it was a real delight to watch him slowly but powerfully edge towards the head of the pack all the way up to the finish line. I have the video of the run below, watch it first before you watch the second one where you'll see him naked. It's an old video, but it's always nice to see an athlete naked after watching him enthrall us first with his sport prowess.
