Last Place

Watching the Olympics, thinking about that guy or that woman running dead last in whatever event and simultaneously wondering how the hell they can be so slacker as to be last and how awesome they must be to even make it to the Olympic finals. What does that feel like, to be so amazingly good and in last place. A book with interviews with last place finishers in world class competition could record those feelings.

    That’s awesome. There were some cool interviews done - they were great to watch on TV. In particular the Afghani chick who came last but represented her country in a sport they’d never done before. Awesome.
