Did you see the women’s 100m sprint final?  Shelly-Ann Fraser of Jamaica blasted away the field and won her first major event.10.78 seconds at just 21 years of age.

I think more inspiring was the exuberant celebration afterwards.  Fraser skipped and pranced around the track laughing to herself.  She was overjoyed.

During her interview with an NBC reporter, she talked about the pride of Jamaica.  Then she burst out in a case of the giggles.  I found myself laughing with her.  She displayed a little bit of humility and genuine joy, rather than the arrogant cockiness that some of the male sprinters displayed.
