Black Tennis Pro's Being Olympics
I'm a few days late with this, but I had to express my joy in seeing the Williams sisters win gold again. Venus and Serena are so incredibly accomplished and it is a pleasure to continue to watch them grow and achieve.

While I definitely wanted to see at least one of the ladies take individual gold, seeing them on the podium during the award ceremony with the other doubles winners resolved my previous disappointment.

The utmost pleasure that I get from supporting and watching the Williams sisters comes not from their power, amassing of grand slam titles over the years or even Olympic gold, but from their connection as sisters. I have an older sister who is just my bestest and mostest (sisterly english) in this world. We don't have Olympic gold between us, but everything else in spirit and love is there. I understand and believe them when they say that winning the gold medal with one another is better than anything else. It is simply one more eternal bond they will share.

I've read a number of articles and heard a couple of commentators speak to the Williams sister's "failure" at the Olympics. We're all entitled to our individual perspectives of the outcome of the games. However, if this is "failure," I'll take a truck load.

Here are some of the beautiful photos from the awards ceremony:
