  1. What an interesting, selfless man. Bricklayer in Geneva? CC skiier at the Olympics? And helping educate Nepalese children. Didn’t see that coming.

  2. Reblogged this on On the Homefront and commented:
    This–this is the true spirit of the Olympics!I am glad to have met this athelete–even for just two minutes…..

  3. Is there a gold medal for humility and goodness and spirit? There should be.

  4. Excellent story……the true spirit of the Olympics.

  5. There are so many great stories behind these Olympic athletics. There struggles and dedication is very inspiring. I have watched a number of them, but missed this man’s story is one of the best. Thanks for sharing.


  6. I saw this interview and I love this man’s attitude. With all the talk about winning and medals, its easy to overlook the dedication and sacrifices these athletes make. This man qualified for the Olympics! How many people can say that?

  7. A wonderful story and clearly a generous heart. I think the winner who waited at the finish line for almost 20 minutes after the race to shake this gentleman’s hand also deserves a shout out. So refreshing to see good sportsmanship and decency…

  8. YAY!!!! THAT’S WHAT THE NEWS SHOULD BE ABOUT ALL THE TIME. Imagine how that would change EVERYTHING. To see POSITIVE and SELFLESS things instead of death, violence and hatred all the time.

  9. Amidst the gross commercialization, the sponsorships, and the proffessionalism, there is this … the true fuel of the Olympic flame..

  10. “His true passion is for children…” – which earns him the respect and honor which outshines any medal…in my opinion.

  11. Nice.

  12. he is truly an inspiration. i am in awe of him on every level.

  13. I was grinning ear to ear watching this. heart warming
