I am enjoying the resurgence in American distance running. Yes, I know, you say, "But you Americans win so many medals. Why do you want more?" Well, track has always been my favorite part of the Olympics. It is nice to see the Olympics hosted by a nation where track is really appreciated. And it is great to see Americans medal in distance races. Silver in the men's 10,000 meters, only the third medal in that event for the US ever (1912, 1964, 2012), and to see the American and the British training partners take first and second, that was great drama. And now silver in the men's 1500 meters, the first American medal in that event since 1968. I enjoy that much more than medals in, for example, men's basketball, which I won't even watch.
