Gold medal winner Aries Merritt has his hair twisted into intricate braids while silver medalist Jason Richardson has sported his trademark dreadlocks for years.
"We both have a little hair thing going on," Merritt says with a smile.
NBC's "Today" show weatherman Al Roker seemed a little envious.
"It's not for everyone," Richardson said with a chuckle."
