Heptathletes are a new favorite of mine after watching them in the Rio Olympics.
Their final event was a race. When they crossed the finish line, they collapsed to the track or doubled over having given it their all.
And then? They started congratulating each other, hugs and smiles. All of them having done their best over those two particular days and respecting each other for their efforts.
My favorite thing about this group of superb athletes (beyond their physical strength, stamina, and skill)? They took a collective bow, all of them lined up along the track.
To me, they demonstrated true Olympic spirit. Love it!
