Best Olympic Moment

August 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

If I had to select my favorite moment from this Olympic Games, apart from the great performances by some outstanding athletes that we all know, I would undoubtedly choose the naturally spontaneous and brilliant celebration by Kenya´s runner, Ezekiel Kemboi.

After the men’s 3000m steeplechase final, Kemboi joyfully jumped on silver medallist Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad´s arms, like a happy kid with the biggest smile, as they both celebrated and showed that any cultural or racial difference is a blatant swindle of our clumsy human minds.

Si tuviera que escoger mi momento favorito de estos Juegos Olímpicos, obviando las actuaciones de los atletas sobresalientes que todos conocemos, elegiría sin dudarlo aquel que muestra la brillante y espontánea celebración del corredor keniata, Ezekiel Kemboi.

Al finalizar la prueba final de 3000m, Kemboi, esbozando una espléndida sonrisa africana, saltó con una alegría inmensa sobre los brazos del medallista de plata francés, Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad, como si del niño más alegre se tratase. De esta forma celebraron su triunfo, ambos atletas, demostrando que cualquier diferencia racial o cultura es, simplemente, un burdo engaño de nuestras torpes mentes humanas.
