Hot Olympian Extra



Because good sportsmanship is hot:



After coming in first in yesterday's 400 meter semifinal, Grenada's Kirani James asked South African runner Oscar Pistorius to exchange name bibs as a show of respect and admiration.  James did this before celebrating his own victory.  That is what the Olympics is all about!  This one goes down as one of my all time favorite Olympic Moments.
