This is black young love right here, Olympian track star Sanya Richards-Ross and Jacksonville Jaguars’ cornerback and two-time Superbowl champion Aaron Ross. Sanya just won gold last night at the Olympics in London for women’s 400-meter run. The medal was her first individual gold and goes along with two 4x400 relay golds from 2004 and 2008, as well as a bronze in the 400 in Beijing.
“My hubby is my best friend and greatest supporter, and the fact he is here tonight, away from Jacksonville where he should be, was so special,” Richards-Ross said. “We don’t compete. His Super Bowl rings give me motivation and, ironically, I was at the house with him today and he was in the back working out. That’s what we do for each other. I remember at the Super Bowl in Indianapolis I found a track to work out. Because to see him at his best inspired me to be my best. We’ll continue to get as much hardware as possible and continue to push each other as much as can be.”
Aaron left the Jaguars training camp for three days to support his wife in London.
“This moment was basically her Super Bowl, so I was more excited than anything to see this outcome,” he said. “Like she said, she was on my ride until the end and I wanted to be here for her ride.
AHHH…to be young, in love and successful. I love it!
Look at the ring!! HUGE and GORGEOUS!
Sanya winning gold!
