  1. I remember it like yesterday when this gallant and patriot won gold at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. When I saw her and that South African runner who was the favorite to win the gold taking the victory lap together I couldn’t help but cry like a baby, man. All glory to Patriot Derertu!!!! Congratulations sister!!!!
