99 Word Blog (#022) Two Olympians’ Hearts of Gold


CommonSenseTom

On 08/16/16, two Olympians, running the 5,000-meter race, collided… American Abbey D’Agostino and New Zealander Nikki Hamblin. For D’Agostino, who’d sustained painful knee ligament injuries, her new top priority had become helping Hamblin… urging her onward…

“Get up, get up! We have to finish! This is the Olympic Games. We have to finish this.”

Afterwards, Hamblin helped D’Agostino into a wheelchair.

Abbey and Nikki had been the last to cross the finish line but their good sportsmanship, sense of community and hearts of gold are worthy of Olympic Gold. Our troubled world could learn much from these two women.
