Michael Phelps Meets Another Olympic Super-Champion
July 31, 2012
LONDON — Larisa Latynina won 18 Olympic medals in gymnastics for the former Soviet Union, but she attended swimming Tuesday night. Michael Phelps was racing. He was trying to beat everyone in the pool and Latynina’s record as well. And when the moment came, she knew exactly what a great champion should do. She put on her lipstick.
Well that’s just sweet. And a nice example of the kind of small, encouraging human stories an event like the Olympics can flush out.
Well done, Michael Phelps, and well done Larisa Latynina.
