Badass of the week
You're in the Olympics. You're anchoring the 400m relay. You're an American, and your biggest competition, the French, have been talking shit about how they are going to crush you.
You're trailing by half a length with 100m to go, with 50m to go, with 25 m to go....and then you just decide to kick ass and win, recording the fastest split of ALL TIME.
I can't find an online video of this. I saw it on TV even after I read about it, and then with German commentary, it and still brought tears to the eyes. It sounded something like this
coming down the last 50 meters:
"Da kann nichts mehr passiert. Da kann nichts mehr passiert. Vielleicht doch. VIELLEICHT DOCH!
LEZAK KOMMT. LEZAK KOMMT!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"
