Olympics? Sportsmanship? Right here.
What an interesting, selfless man. Bricklayer in Geneva? CC skiier at the Olympics? And helping educate Nepalese children. Didn’t see that coming.
Yes, Maureen. With so much sophisticated training and gear, this man seems to exemplify what’s important in sports and in life. I was moved by it all.
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…..
Yes, me too LouAnn. Thank you. Thanks for sharing.
Is there a gold medal for humility and goodness and spirit? There should be.
He’d win all three medals.
Excellent story……the true spirit of the Olympics.
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.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Yes Francine. I agree with all you have shared.

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?
Exactly. Certainly not me! And love that he didn’t finish last.
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…
I agree. Wonderful to see the winner extend his hand. Moving all the way around.
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.
Yes. Incredible story. The man looks like Peace.
Amidst the gross commercialization, the sponsorships, and the proffessionalism, there is this … the true fuel of the Olympic flame..
Yes. That’s it. Right there…
“His true passion is for children…” – which earns him the respect and honor which outshines any medal…in my opinion.
Yes, great man…
Yes. I saw it on the Nightly News and had to find the clip and share.
Rare these days, kind of like our weather. 🙂
he is truly an inspiration. i am in awe of him on every level.
I was grinning ear to ear watching this. heart warming
It is, thank you.
