  1. How about that? One, two to the finish line. Those gold and silver medals were so glittering that they blocked the sun! When you have Taytu incarnate at the top managing the federation this is what you get. I can’t be more proud of what our daughters accomplished at this competition. Make sure you watch Men’s Marathon and 5,000M and Women’s 3,000M Steeplechase finals today on NBC.
