One of those great moments — women’s cycling road race

Filed under: Sport — admin @ 12:53 am

Yesterday morning, my daughter and I watched NBC coverage of the 2012 Olympic game — women’s road race, cycling road. We cheered enthusiastically as we watched Marianne Vos of the Netherlands won the gold medal for this event.

It is said that “Her success was such that it is easier to name the races she didn’t win than those she did.”

The Road Race course is 250km (155 miles) for men, 140km (87 miles) for women. It was made more difficult when the cyclists had to race in rain.

As we watched the exciting event, we fully realized that it takes tremendous mental power and physical stamina to win that medal and taste the super sweetness of victory. No pain, no gain. True in all fields.
