An Olympic Story

OK, so I'm too busy watching the Olympics to do much blogging this week. But after my last post, I thought I'd post this:

"American speed skater Joey Cheek did something very unusual after winning the 500 meter race at the Winter Olympics. He announced he's contributing his $25,000 gold medal award from the U.S. Olympic Committee to refugees from Darfur. And he urged Olympic sponsors to support the same relief effort." [from the NPR website. To hear the rest of the story, go here.
