Morgan Uceny borned on March 10th, 2012. She is from the United States of America. She was competing in the 1,500 meter final. This event was kind of frustrating and sad, because when she was on the last lap, she was tripped from behind. I think it was one of the memorial situations in the Olympic Games of 2012, even because this kind of situations can be used to learn, but also because we were part of the frustration that she was involved. I think that all people that we saw this event, wanted to erupting into tears and pound our palms into the ground, same as she did. By Arantza Segura
