Sigh, dievca always cries during the Olympics. Winter or Summer.
Having been an elite Athlete for the USA,
she know how much pain and joy the athletes have known.
Emotions overwhelm her.
dievca is so happy to see the work done to achieve the honor of attending the Olympics.
she hopes every athlete competes well and brings their best.
It is a lifetime of work, presented to the World.
Here’s a photo mix of past inspirational athletes and gold medal winners from Rio.
Sport is one area where the World comes together in Peace.
Tell dievca that you only root for your country, tell her that you are not inspired from a great Road Cycling Race, Football Match, amazing Synchronized Diving skills, a fabulous High Jump — that you are not wiggling in your seat from a catchy Women’s Gymnastic Floor event. If you tell her that…she will make you sit next to her and watch with her eyes.
(BTW, another area of Peace is Science — but that is something for another post.)
PS. dievca mutters and asks questions through each event, analyzing the body mechanics, rules, performance, tactics. Master is patient with her and is humored.
dievca will cry, again, on August 21st with the closing Ceremonies.
When the time to share the dreams of others comes to an end.
Dreams fulfilled or crushed.
A reflection of Life.
