As the newest member of the team, I'm trying to figure out how I qualify. Laughter In high school, there was the 880 relay. But we only finished second in the State finals in that. And then there was swimming, but in my day we didn't do a flip turn. So, I'd have to learn that if I am going to qualify in that. But anyway, ladies & gentlemen of America's team at the 23d Olympiad -- and Bill Simon has said it all -- you did us proud. You're heroes, every one of you living proof of what happens when America sets its sights high & says, ``Let's create a little excellence.'' And you gave us moments that we'll never forget. There was Blatnick dropping to his knees in thanks. And Mary Lou Retton getting that perfect 10. There was Steinseifer & Hogshead hitting that wall at the exact same hundredth of a second. And Carl Lewis' smile when he tied Jesse Owens' record. (applause). There was something very special about the Olympics; there was a special spirit to it. You gave us all such a lift. You gave us something to be unified around & cheer for together. And I think maybe you possibly heard down on the field that cheer. t went something like, U.S.A.! U.S.A.! Well, it doesn't matter whether you won the gold or the silver or the bronze; the cheer was for you, and for all of you. The specialness of this Olympics was apparent from the beginning. You walked into the opening ceremonies w/ a special kind of pride, a vibrant & a very human delight that was transmitted to the crowds & that was picked up by the people who were watching on TV. Throughout the games, I couldn't help but think that if the people of the world judged Americans by what they saw of you, then they think: Americans? Well, they're generous & full of serious effort; they're full of high spirits; they're motivated by all the best things. They're truly a nation of champions. And I want to take a moment here to single out and say thank you to the uncelebrated story and the people -- your coaches and trainers, your parents and friends, alll the” (applause) (abrupt end) Amateur Athletics; Athletes; Patriotism; Winners; NOTE: Sold at per reel rate, may combine w/ other complete reels to total maximum 10 minutes at per reel rate.
