'"My ancestors were the first people to walk on this land. Those other girls were always going to come up against my ancestors. Who's going to stop me?"

The torch. The swift suit. There she is. Good on ya, Cathy! Butterflies. The back straight. Freeman cool. The bend. Cathy lifting. The home straight. Flying now. Go Cathy. "What a legend, what a champion."

Twenty years later. More tears. Goosebumps, still.'
