Sarah Attar finished last and more than a half-minute slower than her nearest competitor in the women's 800 meters, yet hundreds rose to give her a standing ovation as she crossed the finish line.
"I mean, seeing the support like that, it's just an amazing experience," she said. "I was so excited to be a part of it. I really hope this can be the start of something amazing."
"This is such a huge honor and an amazing experience, just to be representing the women," Attar said in an interview with the Associated Press. "I know that this can make a huge difference."
