A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. – Colin Powell
South Africa went ballistic this morning when our Monday turned GOLD at the RIO 2016 Olympics……even Usain Bolt couldn’t believe his eyes when Wayde van Niekerk obliterated Michael Johnson’s record to become the fastest man in the WORLD around the 400m track.
Every athlete has a story and it is these stories that inspire us and encourage us, like Luvo Manyonga – I am sure the world will not forget his name anytime soon he has really made himself and a nation proud to be South African.
I’m sure Neymar won’t forget Abbubaker Mobara as he kept him at bay in the Brazilian ace at bay in their match.
Ofcourse we had our medal hopefuls with the household names like Cameron van der Burgh, Chad Le Clos, The Blitzbokke and the many more we still going to get but it is the underdog story that really touches our hearts….and waking up this morning our hearts were racing for our country….
…it only takes seconds to be victorious, anything is possible if you believe.
GO FOR GOLD….but remember…
Don’t gain the world and lose your soul; wisdom is better than silver or gold. – Bob Marley
