Usain Bolt finished his track career with 9 Olympic gold medals, including 3 straight in 100m & 200m. People will remember his victories, but Usain didn’t start out in first place.
He competed in the 2004 Olympics in the 200m and was eliminated in the 1st heat. He didn’t even make the semis.
Why is Usain bolt great? Because he pushed beyond his personal limits. He competed against himself, not the world. Now’s he’s the fastest man ever. There’s a lesson here…Do you see it?
