  1. There was no excuse for every one of us for not having watched this race this afternoon unless you are at work or under the weather. I was one of those who were gifted and privileged to watch it. Our daughters were not only number one but one, two, three. I have seen it all. I was looking at our gallant daughter down the last stretch and I was looking at something on the sky above them. I saw their late uncles Obbo Abebe, Mamo and Mirutz hovering above them urging them till the finish line. I was hearing Obbo Abebe asking Gudaf, Letesenbet and Ejgayehu to look at his bare feet. I saw Obbo Mamo showing them how he obliterated the field in a stifling weather in Mexico in 1968. I heard Obbo Mirutz screaming at all three with ‘shift, shift, shift!!!’ Then something got hold of me and with a cane in my hand started running with them when suddenly my octogenarian legs began giving up. I was back on my sofa still screaming ‘Get’em! Go get’em!!!’. When it was over and seeing my daughters were one, two and three, tears started flowing from both of my eyes. Tears of joy. I’m good now! I’m good for a week!!!
