Mutaz Barshim, on the left, from Qatar and
Gianmarco Tameri-Italy. They are good friends.
These two are high jumpers and tied so the
official asked them if they wanted a jump off.
Mutaz asked if they could tie for gold, the
official said yes. The Olympians went wild,
the crowd went wild and I got teary. It was
definitely a moment. Talk about Olympic spirit.
