Olympic Hero

Posted by Dori Nottingham

I get so excited to watch the Olympics and see all the different athletes. They are truly amazing. I'm so exhausted that I only watch a few minutes a night before I fall asleep. The gold is the what every athlete looks for and all the glory goes to them, however there are those that try to compete and to finish. I saw this clip on youtube and felt overwhelming joy for this man. It takes so much courage to do what he does and I'm sure he is truly the best in his country. He deserves great credit and admiration instead of being mocked. It's definitely the "cool runnings" of swimming.
