My cousin Ryan is now the world number one in shot put, winning the Diamond League and the 2013 US Championships this year. He ranked 9th in the 2012 London Olympics, and may break the world shot put record some day. He now sits at 12th on the world all-time list.
And he knits.
He even taught his mom to knit.
His favorite moment this year? The birth of his baby boy.
How could a Pollyanna not be proud?
