As a fan of track I had always read about Snell with awe. This show was amazing and confirmed that awe. The fact that he ran a world record mile on a grass track is astonishing in of itself. Snell was like an assassin on the track in his all black racing singlet and the description of his strides ripping up the track confirm this. One of the truly touching moments is when Snell gets teary eyed on the show when he observes that the silver and bronze medalists in one of his olympic gold races flew all the way across the world to honor him on the show. It is also interesting to see how much better other countries are at honoring their track atheletes while here in the USA they are ignored. The host gets a little bit racy in his comments but it is all in good fun if awkward in moments. The show and the series itself are wonderful and really speak to human dignity and spirit. So thank you so much for posting it and please bring more!
