LONDON (AP) — American runner Sanya Richards-Ross walked through Olympic Stadium carrying her gold-bottomed cleats.

If things go as planned, she’ll be doing the same with a gold medal.

Richards-Ross won her semifinal heat in the women’s 400 meters Saturday night, setting a blistering pace before coasting to a spot in the final.

It sure looked like she was showing off. If so, who could blame her? She had her husband, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Aaron Ross, on hand for his first Olympics.

Ross left training camp Friday and arrived the following day, just in time to spend some time with Richards-Ross before her latest race. He had to be impressed. After all, Richards-Ross was way out front after they turned for home.
