Three time Olympian was disqualified before she left the starting line. The rule doesn’t care how much hard work you put into training and qualifying for an Olympic event. Not your local city league. But an Olympic event. All the dreams of receiving her gold medal after competing in the 2006, 2010 and now 2014 Olympics comes to an end, just. like. that.
Do you have areas in your life where you work so hard and so long to get something and only to watch it disappear? Could you have done something different to avoid being disqualified? Let’s do whatever we can to be pro-active to avoid any future disqualifications. Let’s have something to show for all this work.
Keep working hard. Keep enjoying the ride. Now let’s finish the race.
