Yes, I'm glad Beach still competed after no points in the javelin.

I got chills watching it. Classy move by Beach.
Don't worry - they aren't even televised live here in the States and we'll get a "clip" show at the very best.

Wow - most exciting. I regret that the American Olympic Trials are not televised abroad...and aren't available (that I've seen) on youtube videos. I would love to see the highlights of Ashton's performance.
Clay didnt finish. He came out from the warmup room to congratulate Eaton.
And I was surprised Bryan Clay finished the meet after the DQ in the hurdles and fouls in the discus. Although it looks like his hurdles time/score was reinstated.
Agreed. An amazingly classy moment. It cuts against pretty much every vector of American popular culture.
Great job by Eaton, he's just going to get better.
What Beach did is the classiest thing I think I've ever seen in any sport. He's going to great, too, but he can always remember and be proud of what he did.
