Reppin’ Blasian: Bryan Clay

leave a comment »

The Olympic games are coming to a close and I’m still on the fence as whether the Chinese gymnastics team are under or over 16.  But the Blasian community is buzzing about Bryan Clay who has won gold in the decathlon.   Born to a Japanese American mother and African American father, Clay turned to track and field after the divorce of his parents and remarriage of his mother.  An early coach noted what a natural athlete he was and encouraged him in sport.  Four years ago in Athens Clay took the silver; today he has the gold. 

Decathalon contestants compete over two days in sports that test strength and endurance.  Decathlon winners are often referred to as the “World’s Greatest Athletes”

To learn more about this star athlete read the article in the Washington Post or check out his website.
