The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare.
– Juma Ikangaa
There is perhaps nothing more extraordinary and awe-inspiring than watching athletes tests their physical, mental and emotional limits in competition. Those rare, unguarded moments when athletes are driven by sheer force of will; when everything falls away but their teammates and the competition; when they must dig deeper than their training to persevere unbearable pain in those last seconds when the smallest movement counts – that is sheer beauty.
