I’m really excited about this and I have to share…Christian Smith, a Kansas native and KSU alum, has qualified for the Olympics in the 800m. Holy cow, wow, hooray, yippee, and yay! (That’s me being “really excited.”) To make things a little more exciting, Christian earned his Olympic berth the hard way…with a diving finish to edge out fourth place AND record the much-needed A standard. There’s a story about the race at OregonLive. There’s also a neat photo gallery—the second photo in the loop shows Christian’s dive to the finish. Talk about heart. Wow.
