Remember Zola Budd?

I just came across this article, and thought I'd share it here:

After the Fall

It's long, but worth it.

I'm glad to know she's OK after all these years. I remember watching that infamous race during the 1984 Olympics, and it seemed obvious to me that she wasn't at fault. It was somehow implied that it was her fault but the only way that could've been true was if you just blamed her for being in the race at all. I couldn't believe the way she was treated afterward, and her explanation of the whole episode makes a lot of sense. She was such an odd presence at those Games.
