Ashton Eaton and Trey Hardee of the US finished with a gold and silver in decathlon. While Damian Warner spoke of simply doing his best and having fun, which is what the Olympics are truly about, Trey Hardee disgraced himself in an interview after the final event. The interviewer was just as bad as he asked him about the surgery he had less than a year ago so he could brag about how he recovered in less time than normal for Tommy John surgery. This is a procedure that many baseball players have, especially pitchers. Trey made several stupid comments including one where he said that " he and Ashton are untouchable ". He was so arrogant in the interview and couldn't even manage a smile. I think even Eaton was embarrassed because of how smug and arrogant he was. Just another example of how so many athletes don't seem to understand that they have been successful in large part due to some natural God given talent. Losing graciously is important, however, this guy has yet to figure out that winning with grace is just as important as well. I guess he is still young , immature and arrogant. Hopefully that will change but not likely.
