Canadian Boy Sends Football Medal to Olympians Stripped of Medals
August 15, 2012
Elijah Porter was distraught when Canada’s 4x100m relay team were stripped of their bronze medal following the final in London, a decision which was taken when video replay evidence showed that Jared Connaughton stepped out of his lane during the race.
But rather than simply feel sad for his idols, Elijah decided to do something to try and cheer them up: he sent the quartet a medal he had won in a recent football tournament so that they didn’t finish their summer empty handed.
The athletes, the story says, were so touched that they took a pic of the letter and medal and put it on Twitter. Here it is:
That’s one nice 10-year-old kid. Bravo, Elijah.
