• Olympic medalist Eric Shanteau attempting to get a drink at the bar at Article One on Capitol Hill Friday night but getting besieged by so many fans and gawkers that he didn’t quite have a chance. Don’t think you’d recognize him? Well, may have helped that he had his gold medal (for his role on the winning 4x100-meter medley team), which he gamely let folks try on. The swimmer, who overcame testicular cancer four years ago, spoke earlier in the day at an American Cancer Society meeting at the Hyatt adjoining the bar.
