I really liked this article on Steve Prefontaine. Even though he has been gone more many years this article looked back on his life and the impact he has made. the quotes they used were from people who might not have known Pre personally, but people whose lives he had touched. I can personally identify with the people since I was a runner and some of my favorite quotes are from him.
This article about Missy Franklin was enjoyable to read because it shows the playful side of such a strong swimmer. I felt that the writer was able to show that even though Missy is a powerhouse, she is also a college freshman learning her way around. It was funny how well I could relate to what she is going through and I felt that this showed her in a fun light.
