An amazing girl from my hometown went to the Olympics and kicked some serious ass. Our hometown doesn’t have a fantastic reputation, but Tianna Madison serves as an inspiration to every child who lives there. She makes me proud that my nephew will attend the same school as her and grow up under her great influence. Tianna, I think I speak for everyone when I say that we are so very proud of you.


Congrats @ teamtianna.tumblr.com on the gold medal world record win in the 4x100 relay (8/10/12-London Olympics)

U.S. women broke the 1985 world record of 41.37 with a time of 40.82. In bottom photo, as she crosses the finish line, anchor Carmelita Jeter points to the time clock which shows the World Record time.
