Hooray!  36-year-old Moroccan Jaouad Gharib just became the second Moroccan to win a medal at this year’s Olympic Games (Hasna Benhassi was the first, with a bronze in the women’s 800m).  Gharib, from Khenifra, didn’t start running until he was 22 and is known for constantly fiddling with his shirt, tucking and untucking it, during races.
