This is how the crowd reacted during and after 100m World record holder, World and Olympic Champion Usain Bolt gets Disqualified in the 100m finals at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu, South Korea due to a false start~ Heartbreaking!

Usain Bolt being able to control himself and continue with his cool down routine after being Disqualified at the 2011 World Chapionships in Daegu South Korea. This is at the Warm up area as people were leaving the stadium and reporters patiently waited until he was ready to talk. Amazing!

El idioma del atletismo es universal~ Hoy 2 minutos para terminar con mi entreno fuerte a la orilla del rio un koreano se pone a la par a igualarme el paso y a correr conmigo. Al terminar nos dimos la mano yo baje mi cabeza y le dije Gracias, el con una sonrisa gigante en su rostro hizo lo mismo y prosiguio su camino. Aun continuo sonriendo!

The running language is universal. Today during the last two minutes of my hard session along the river path, a Korean man tags along and starts running with me. When the time was up, we grabbed eachothers hands. I bowed and said "Thank You". With a huge smile in his face he did the same thing and kept going. I am still smiling!

Playground between K-2 and 3-5 buildings

The new elementary school, Alamosa Elementary, in Alamosa will be opening their doors later this month for the 2011- 2012 school year . Before the 2010-2011 school year ended I was able to come and visit the new facilities with all the kids from evans elementary school. Kids are excited about the new change and it was wonderful to hear many of them make positive comments like " With a school like this, It makes me want to come to school everyday". Quite honest after visiting the facilities it made me want to be an elementary student again. The good thing about the change is that all kids from Polston, Boyd, and Evans will be able to share and enjoy this new facility at the beggining of this upcoming school year.
