Passion...

"In Sport, there is fear and there is passion. I chose not to be afraid. I chose passion. If I had been afraid, I would have made mistakes. I chose not to be afraid of failure. I was calm and composed then and I knew what needed to be done and I was taught to do it. I wanted to share with the world the grace and beauty of Gymnastics..."
- Li Xiaoshuang, Olympic Gold Medallist of 1996.

While channel surfing between the India-WestIndies game tonight, I came across this show called "Difference" on ESPN. Amazing...

The show was a profile of Li Xiaoshuang, an Olympic Gold Medallist from China in the field of Gymnastics. It truly was an amazing show and I felt wonderful seeing it. I even remarked to my mother: "Maa, see how we spend 60 seconds watching a routine and consider it regular and these people spend their entire life in pursuit of that perfection."

Amazing...
