    American runner Manteo Mitchell has revealed he ran the last 200m of the Olympic men's 4x400m relay heats with a broken left leg.
    Mitchell began the race for the United States, who went through to Friday's final as the second fastest team despite Mitchell's injury.
    "As soon as I took the first step past the 200m mark, I felt it break." Manteo told the USA Track and Field website.

    ...what an unbelievable story. If they go on to medal this man deserves one of them and also to stand or limp onto the podium.

    I love the Olympics because of the human stories that unfold.
