Man Crush: Usian Bolt, Even in Defeat, He Triumphs
“My earliest memories are just playing sports with my friends in the street. Cricket, football, whatever sport was happening . I was involved and keen to play and keen to win. Also, I remember my friends and I wanted to be cricketers.
The first three years of my senior career it was like, whatever – I didn’t really care, I was just running. My coach, Glen Mills, he said “listen, you need to get serious. You can’t be an Olympic champion and not train hard”. I started listening and understanding what he was saying. That’s when I started making goals for myself and working towards being the best.’
Easy is not a option..No days off..Never Quit..Be Fearless..Talent you have Naturally..Skill is only developed by hours and hours of Work
What I always wanted was to be great. For me, greatness means being remembered. People talk about sports all the time, and I want to be a part of that conversation, you know what I mean? When they talk about greats it’s always Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Pelé.? I want to be a part of that conversation so when they talk about the greats they say Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Pelé, Usain Bolt.’
My coach always explains to me, you go out there every day to win, but never feel like you can’t lose. The moment you start thinking along that line, something’s going to go wrong. I mean, I’m confident that I’m going to win, but I never think, ‘No one can beat me.’ – Usain Bolt
Even though Usain Bolt lost his last race to Gaitlin, his name could be heard loudly as the fans chanted “Usian bolt! usain bolt!”. The race was a defeat but everyone, even his opponents treated it like a triumph.
