At the close of the NBC telecast of the Beijing Olympics, NBC sportcaster Cris Collinsworth summed up his images and impressions of the Olympics and Beijing. In an eloquent tribute, Cris said that his most memorable moment was Natalie du Toit competing in the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim.
Many who saw that race would have to agree. Gold medalist Larisa Ilchenko said that Natalie deserved a medal just for competing.
