Iditarod 2011: At the Finish




John Baker after winning the 2011 Iditarod from Kyle Hopkins@adn.com on Vimeo.



John Baker gets my vote for Athlete of the Year for 2011. The Iditarod is called "The Last great Race," and it's more than that. I can't think of one of our world famous, highly paid, self-aggrandizing athletes in other sports who could endure what John Baker did during his run from Anchorage to Nome. They certainly wouldn't do it for $50,000 and a truck.
