Congratulations Erin and Elana!

It was big, big day last night as Erin Pac and Elana Meyers brought home the bronze medal! At the Olympics, medals, regardless of color, are so hard to come by. You get one shot every four years to get one, so when you do it's truly amazing. Think of that, it's not like other championships, which are held every year. You lost the Superbowl, well guess what, you get a shot next year. At the Olympics, it's you had a bad day, maybe again four years from now. Four years. Four years is a long time. Most average NFL careers are three years. There's no guarantee in four years you will even make another games. So when you have athletes win medals, it's a big deal and something that they should be extremely proud of for the rest of your life. Congrats Erin and Elana, you guys were amazing when it counted.

I think just making it to the Olympics puts you in a rare and special class of athletes. Yes, winning a medal would be great, but very few people can say that they competed in the Olympics. All of these athletes are amazing. Congratulations!
