A Winner

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles he has overcome.” Booker T. Washington

Amid all the tales of victory, of gold, silver and bronze medals this is a tale of a true Olympic winner. Samia came from a country facing horrendous turmoil. No, she didn’t go home to Somalia with an Olympic medal in her event. Yet she felt just as successful as if she’d had. Now this is the true Olympic spirit that sometimes gets lost in the excitement of “Going for the Gold”.
