RIO DE JANEIRO -- Ryan Held couldnt sing along to the U. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .S. national anthem with his teammates. He was too overcome with emotion on the top spot of the medal podium.Held broke down crying, his shoulders shaking, his eyes squeezed shut after the Americans won the 4x100-meter freestyle relay on the second night of swimming at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics on Sunday. Caeleb Dressel, Michael Phelps, Nathan Adrian and Held teamed to claim the gold in 3 minutes, 9.92 seconds for the first time since the 2008 Beijing Games.Standing between Adrian and Phelps, Held bent his head and brought his left hand to his face as the anthem blared. Phelps saw what was happening and offered a supportive hand around Helds neck.I didnt think I was going to cry. I was too tired to cry, I didnt think I could cry, Held said. Ive heard the national anthem hundreds of times, but as soon as that played it was just something different. The tears just started rolling down my face.On the stroll around the deck, gold medals slung around their necks, Dressel lost it, too. He brought his right arm across his face to wipe away tears.They were making us cry, said Phelps, who had a tear roll down his cheek while posing for photographers.Adrian swam the anchor leg for a team highly motivated to bring Olympic gold back to the U.S. The Americans lost the race four years ago in London and didnt even make the final at last years world championships in Russia, when Phelps was suspended for his second DUI.Adrian smiled as he comforted his younger teammates.I love a little emotion, he said. I had to fight back some tears myself.Dressel, a sophomore at Florida, and Held are Olympic rookies. Heck, the Rio de Janeiro Games are the first international meet of Helds career. The sophomore at North Carolina State didnt make the U.S. team in an individual event, so getting the chance to swim the relay final with veterans Adrian and Phelps was huge.I thrive off their energy, I feel more confident, Held said. I feel like I stand a little bit taller with those guys. Michael and Adrian, theyre like, `Once in a lifetime experience, lets go after it, have fun, let the emotions feel you.Phelps had counseled Dressel and Held ahead of time that it was OK to sing and cry on the medal stand.Its good to see the emotion of those young guys. It shows they really do care and they love what theyre doing, said Phelps, who earned his record 19th Olympic gold medal.Held marveled at his good fortune to have helped add to Phelps glittering collection.Holy cow, its unreal, unbelievable, he said. To be with him and to be teammates on his last hoorah, its amazing. Cheap Orioles Jerseys .
