A true champion

Short post today. I have been so incredibly obsessed with the Olympics the past week. My sleep schedule can’t wait for them to be over!

Anyways, I have been waiting for track and field to start very impatiently. It sure did kick off with a bang!! I was absolutely in awe by one man in particular: Oscar Pistorius.

Wow. There are no words.
If you have been living under a rock, this man made it all the way to the semi finals for the 400m race in London. Yes, he competed against people with two legs and he KILLED it.

Seriously this man is such an inspiration. It makes me feel bad for ever complaining about a bad run or a nagging ache. When he was being interviewed, he was so incredibly humble and thankful for just being on that track. Seriously so amazing. Ladies and gents… gold medal or not, that is what a TRUE champion looks like.
Which Olympic athlete has inspired you the most?
