Olympic Heart

I love the stories of the Olympic athletes. Each one is special.

I saw the Canadian mogul skier win the gold medal. He dedicated his win to his brother who spends his days in a wheelchair.

There are so many stories of terrible injuries that athletes have had. Yet they gave it their all to come back.

Some athletes lost the gold medal during the last Olympics and have returned to try again.

These stories are about heart. It takes more to win than skill. It takes hard work. It takes focus. It takes courage.
