ThePostGame: Little League Coach Visits Mound To Tell Son 'I Love You'

World Series moment
IBT: Olympic runners Nikki Hamblin, Abbey D'Agostino win special awards for touching track moment
World Class moment
NZHerald: "[I]t would be fitting if Hamblin and d'Agostino did receive the Pierre de Courbetin medal. Former All Blacks captain Tana Umaga is the only New Zealander to have won it.

What is this "rugby" of which you speak?
Umaga received the honour after he went to the aid of Welshman Colin Charvis, who had been knocked out in a 2003 test match in Hamilton. Despite the game going on around him, Umaga put Charvis in a recovery position and removed his mouth guard.

You can make it!

Hamblin received her fair play award at a ceremony at New Zealand's Olympic house in Rio with team officials and fellow team members watching on.
Hamblin said the honour was overwhelming.
"When we got up that morning, neither of us knew what the day would hold," she said, referring to the moment in the 5000m heat last week that saw both competitors fall and go on to help each other up, leading to their nomination for the award.
"Winning this award is overwhelming. I am proud that what we did and truly believe that you can be both a competitor and kind and responsive at the same time. Everyone comes here to compete but there are a lot of people who don't achieve that and the journey is really important too. That was one of those journeys and it has gone on to be one of the most important moments of my life."".........

Winners All
