Dean Koga of the Seattle Frontrunners was injured when shrapnel from a 9-inch bomb, one of three tossed, hit him during the track and field competition here in Copenhagen at the World Outgames. The incident is being called a hate crime. Koga, photo right, is being kissed by a fellow runner the day after, glad that Koga was back on the track.

I spent all morning at the track and interviewed Koga and other athletes about what happened. You can read about it here.
