Daily Blitz - Feb. 28: Championship Duo

What takes prominence in a trophy case – Super Bowl rings or Olympic gold medals?

If you're Aaron Ross or his track-star wife, Sanya Richards-Ross, you have to answer these types of questions.

With the Super Bowl XLVI victory in Indy, the cornerback will receive another piece of jewelry to balance out her hardware.

But she's out for more.

During this past weekend, Sanya boosted her credentials for the 2012 London Olympic Games with a 400 meter title at the US Indoor Track and Field Championships in Albuquerque, N.M.

Not only did Sunday's victory fall on her birthday, but it was also the athletic couple's second wedding anniversary. Ross, fresh off his second Super Bowl win, was able to attend.

"Aaron's football schedule doesn't really allow him much time to see my big races," Richards-Ross told the Agence France-Presse (AFP). "So having him here to see this one, that was a big bonus for me.

"I was in Indianapolis to see Aaron and the Giants win the Super Bowl three weeks ago, so I guess this kind of evens it up."

Richards-Ross set a meet record of 50.71 in the 400 and clinched a trip to the World Indoor Championships coming up March 9-11 in Istanbul, Turkey. She will then try for the Olympic team, where she won two gold medals in the 4 x 400 meter relay in 2004 and 2008 (she also won a bronze in 2008 in the 400 meter individual).
