Tragedy and Triumph

The US Mens Volleyball Team was truly inspired to achieve the gold medal. Their coach is the son in law of Todd Bachman who was murdered in Beijing. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Todd was a very much admired and respected businessman in the twin cities of Minneapolis and St.Paul. These guys earned the gold medal when most thought they would be lucky to get a medal. Congrats to the US Mens volleyball team!

After the match, the coach walked off the court to somewhere he could be alone to let his emotions flow. Of course the cameras followed him. It was very touching.
