IN THE FLURRY OF STORIES THAT COME FROM the Olympics — Jackasses lying about robberies, famous athletes making weird faces, and entire countries cheating — it’s easy to miss what the Games are really all about: cooperation.
When it comes to cooperation, there are two clear winners in 2016. Their names? Abbey D’Agostino of the US and Nikki Hamblin of New Zealand. The two were running in the first heat of the 5,000 meter race, when Hamblin tripped over someone and fell. D’Agostino was running right behind her and fell as well.
