Lakewood athlete thankful for more than her silver

Ever wonder what you would say if a reporter asked you what you enjoyed most about winning in the Olympics?

Well, that’s what happened to Nancy Roberts, a Lakewood resident and member of Pierce County Friends and Athletes.

She took silver in the 100-year trot. After the medal ceremony, I asked her what was her favorite part of Saturday.

“The sunshine,” Roberts said, her smile beaming.

At these games, the old saying of “winning isn’t everything” really is true.
