National Public Radio is doing some spectacular pre-Olympic stories. Yesterday I caught "All Things Considered" and it was a treat: a profile of Adam Nelson, one of the winningest track and field athletes in American history. He's a shot putter, a Dartmouth grad, a two-time Olympic silver medalist, and a world champion. Fittingly he won his world title in 2005 in Helsinki, Finland - a country renowned for great throwers and great enthusiasm for the event. Check out this feature - a great tribute to Nelson's career and his aspirations for Beijing.
