First Gold Medal for Uganda

The runner from Uganda, took the lead at mile 24 and is way out in front.  He will be the first Ugandan to win gold for that country.  He garnered his countries flag as he crossed the finish line.  He was followed later by 2 Kenyan runners.  It looked earlier that they were going to win the gold and silver but that was before mile 24.  He accelerated around a turn at mile 24 which out-witted and surprised the 2 Kenyan’s.  Meb is #4 @ 37 years old and already won a silver medal in a previous race, he did really well.

It was a great race and now onto the closing ceremonies tonight!
