This video seems to be getting a little bit of stick because I have chosen to use the word courageous, which in my opinion this is.
Why do people get so offended and abusive over the use of the word courage? courage has many different meanings and even more applications. You do not have to be in life or death situation to display courage. I have never seen a race at this level where a runner has comeback to win after being overtaken in the home straight, it is almost impossible to do, your body and brain are screaming at you to give it up, you’ve done your best, your not fit enough, but this is where the courage comes in, courage overules your brain, courage ignores the pain, courage finds more when there’s no more to give! So in my opinion this is the most amazing display of courage on a TRACK!! i have ever seen, fortunately as you can see from the likes and dislikes that most people agree.
To come on here and rant, rave, and swear at me, over what is my personal view of this video is ridiculous. If you don’t like the video, or my use of the word courage, then move on and troll your next video. Please don’t waste your time trying to argue about my use of the word courage. I’m more than happy that at least 90% of the people who watch this agree with me.
Listen to final words of commentator David Coleman (one of the most respected commentators of all time) “A FINE WIN, A VICTORY FOR SHEER COURAGE” If David Coleman says it’s courage, then that’s good enough for me.
