nerdiosity:

Not going to lie.

I teared up when I saw this.

This is what the Olympics are about.

Acceptance around the world.

The man who’s back is shown in the photo is Kirani James from Grenada won the qualifying race. He asked this other athlete to exchange race numbers with a man who didn’t qualify, Oscar Pistorius.

Not only is it great to see such great comradeship between this men but it was an amazing race to witness because Pistorius is a double amputee.

Kirani James went on to win the first gold medal for his country in the 400 Meter.
