Maurice Greene has finally encountered a race he cannot win: Dancing with the Stars.
The world-record-holding sprinter was eliminated from the competition show on Tuesday night, along with his dance partner Cheryl Burke.
But the former Olympic medalist was not bitter in defeat, saying, “I had a lot of fun. I made a lot of new friends out here. I learned how to dance out here in front of millions of people every night. I had a great time.”
The only other athlete in this season’s field, Misty May-Treanor, was recently forced to withdraw after rupturing her tendon.
