By now I’m sure you’ve heard about how Usain Bolt casually jogged 100m to a another Olympic Gold medal, while smiling and looking at the other contestants. And while it’s unrealistic that a person could be so good, it’s still pretty expected from Usain Bolt, the man who broke the world record while having his shoelaces undone.
And as far as running goes, I don’t really have that much personal experience to compare to, but I still believe mind over matter is a key factor in running. Just look at this video, and judge for yourself.
This is British marathon runner Mo Farah, who fell halfway through the race, but still ended up winning the Gold medal. But I guess some people just have what it takes, seeing as he also is the first-ever athlete to claim victory in three long-distance doubles at the consecutive World Championships.
