Regarding the Olympics
Friday, August 10 2012
THE EDITOR: It seems every time I open a newspaper or turn on the TV I hear some woeful tale of sad defeat from an athlete who failed to measure up to their own gold metal standard at the Olympics. From the several cries that triathlon competitor Paula Findlay’s preparation was “completely mismanaged” to the various accusation that the Canadian women’s soccer team was ousted by crooked referees, the life of an Olympian seems cruel indeed.
I often wonder how many of these athletes — who give up everything and everyone for several years just to win a metal that fades — manage to have the strength, courage and desire to walk two blocks to Church each Sunday? It would seem from their lack of grace in defeat, not many. What a shame.
