The Beauty of Retrospect, Olympics Edition: Sanya Richards-Ross

Once again, I feature one of the most victorious track stars in recent memory, Sanya Richards-Ross.

Ms. Richards-Ross, whom I last featured here in September 2012, was on a roll after the London Olympics, placing first with her teammates in the 4x400-meter relay races at the 2014 and 2015 World Relay Championships, both in Nassau, as well as first in the distance medley relay in the latter meet.  She also won silver in the 2015 World Championships Beijing in the 4x400-meter relay.

Unfortunately, an injury ended her career at the 2016 U.S. Olympic track and field trials.  Almost immediately, she joined NBC as a commentator for the remainder of the trials and for the 2016 Olympics as well.  I hope this is the start of a new career for her.
