How cool is this. I have a co-worker at The Armory — Aliann Pompey — who is now a four-time Olympian for Guyana. Back in her college days at Manhattan, she won the NCAA 400-meter title and she has run 50-something. Yes, she is quick (and the head of the Armory College Prep program!).
And in participating in the Opening Ceremonies in London tonight, she took a ton of photos, including one of her with Erison Hurtault and another of Samyr Laine outside the Stadium. Yes, Olympians taking pictures of Olympians. Thanks, Aliann! You are an honorary member of the Heps Nation!
