The Washington Nationals racing presidents opened a six game home stand at Nationals Park promising to dedicate all races this week to events of the Olympic Games.
The festivities kicked off Tuesday night with a “race walk” at Nationals Park set to Olympic music (yes, race walking is in fact an Olympic event).
George Washington led a tight pack into the right field corner, but the pace picked up in the home stretch, and Thomas Jefferson broke into a moderate sprint.
George and Abe gave chase, leaving Teddy Roosevelt as the only president to stick to the rules.
