BEIJING — American steeplechase runner Josh McAdams said one of the highlights of his Beijing Olympics experience was traveling with and being a part of Team USA "and meeting the Dream Team."

That would be the star-studded 2008 U.S. men's Olympic basketball team, not the '92 version which first earned the moniker.

"People were joking with me back in Provo, my teammates were telling me, 'Make sure you get a picture with this guy and that guy,"' McAdams said.

And he ended up with the last laugh over his former BYU teammates, since there were plenty of makeshift photo ops with heralded American hoopsters.

"I got all the pictures I wanted with them," he said. "It's been fantastic."
