Why does the "weakest link" get all the glory?

The (UC)LA Times in their Sunday 8/24/08 Beijing 2008 article entitled "Their run of the place" put a 7x8 inch color picture of only Monique Henderson on the front page. There were 4 members of the Gold Medal winning 4x1600 meter relay: Wineberg, Felix, Henderson and Richards. Allyson Felix, a USC alumna, ran the fastest leg at 48.55 seconds. She handed the baton to UCLA's Henderson who lost the lead in the third leg. Why did the weakest link get the color picture? She is a Bruin!
