Three reasons to love the Olympics

An athlete from Afghanistan won that country's first Olympic medal EVER and was given a house by the Afghan Government.

An athlete from South Africa finished in the middle of the pack in marathon swimming despite the fact that her leg was amputated after a motorcycle accident 8 years ago.

An athlete from the United States won a gold medal in wrestling. He is the son of illegal immigrants from Mexico and was raised along with his 7 brothers and sisters by a single mother who fled Los Angeles with them to get away from his criminal father.

OMG that is awesome about the Afghani!
I like your reasons.
