The men’s 4 x 100 meter relay final: Perfect Teamwork

OSCAR – Perfect Teamwork

TEAMWORK

I have to admit, I had no idea who OSCAR was, until I watched the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
There he was; together with the running world elite, OSCAR reached the 400 meters semi-finals. WOW!
Then I lost sight of him, until he made headlines for definitively the wrong reasons.

By researching for the Blog, I came across the Video of the men’s 4 x 100 meter relay final at the London Paralympics 2012.
It was unbelievable, how the 4 gentleman from SA perfectly worked together to achieve the victory and also an impressive world record.
But it was once again OSCAR who showed his incredible running talent by holding off the Brazilian Alan Oliveira on the final leg of the race.

Still cheering

  1. It’s the first time I’ve seen this – somehow managed to miss all the relays, both Olympic and Paralympic! Thank you, Andrea.

    And yes, I sat there going, ‘come on, Oscar!’ :D

  2. This race and the 400m Men’s Paralympics final are definitely my favourite sporting events of all times! Superseding Eddy Merckx winning the Tour de France for the 5th time! No small feat!
