This is what the olympics is all about. Diana Taurasi getting emotional accepting her thrid gold medal. In her carrer she has won three consecutive NCAA championships, a Wade Trophy, Associated Press Player of the Year award, WNBA Rookie of the Year, two WNBA Championships, and much more. However, standing on the podium we saw a rare side for the usual stotic and energic 6 ft basketball player. Tears…. and because of those tears we, as fans, are reminded of the sacerfics and hardships that all these athletes go through. There reward is to hopefully stand with a medal around there necks and hear their national anthem play.
Diana Taurasi and the rest of the 2012 USA Women Basketball team has found the respect that they should have already gotten. CONGRATULATIONS
