Olympics 2012: Felix Sanchez, Oldest Gold Medalist Ever in 400m Hurdles

Felix Sanchez won the Dominican Republic's first medal for the London Olympics. The country is widely celebrating its only medal -- and a gold one at that. With the tender memory of Sanchez's grandmother at the forefront, he ran a race worthy of a winner. He and Andrew Taylor have traded off wins in the last four Olympic Games, but this time, it was Sanchez who prevailed, eight years after his previous gold. Taylor wound up in fifth place, not the finish a two-time Olympic gold medalist wants.
