Billy Nelson: I'm Living My Dream At The Beijiing Olympics
Orato.com has our very own Olympic athlete, Mr. Billy Nelson. Nelson needed to finish in the top three and beat the Olympic “A” standard of 8:24 in the men’s 3,000m steeplechase final at the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials to make the team for Beijing. He did just that, fighting his way to a personal record of 8:21.47 seconds. “This was my dream,” Nelson said. “I’m going to the Olympics.” Billy is now on Chinese soil, giving us a bird's eye view from the track and from behind the scenes. Follow his personal journey, in his own words.
