Imagine the feeling of one winning an Olympian medal

The Winner

Imaging having that chance at being an Olympian
That moment to take part in something of historic proportion
This situation requires that grit, determination lots of mental power
To be that one who will eventually cross the line as the winner

There you are basking in the moment the glory of the aura
Heart beating so fast as though you were getting bout of tachycardia
And as you decelerate as the time has come to slow down
In the interim there will be lots of those media personnel around

That joy of taking the lap draped in the flag of your country
The crowd roars but somehow you can hear those of your nationality
Not forgetting to acknowledge the applause and shake hands with the spectators
See this too as a relationship between those fans and you the entertainer

Then the mind gets transposed to a place back in the native land
As you wish they were there those persons who had that hand
In nurturing as well as supporting even scolding this went a long way
In driving home those values that has brought you to this day

Exercise good sportsmanship accepting and offering congratulations to the others
For that maturity which comes from those who when defeated are graceful losers
Because it was their fierce and very forceful competitive nature
That was a factor that made you certainly had to dig a bit deeper

This win can be that avenue to what would be a bright future
There will be no doubt that the financial situation will get better
Advertisement, endorsement and all those fringe benefits of a winner
And those demands both mentally and physically will be certainly greater

What a champagne moment it will be when the medal moment has come
How those stomach butterflies will be there as you ascend that podium
On hearing your national anthem, this will make the body swell with pride
Yes this moment what a great one will within you forever reside


Excitement, Fame, Feeling, Fortune, Opportunities

I have never won a Olympic medal but, I could only imagine how they might feel, after all those years of hard work, done within minutes or days, just unreal. I know it makes me feel pride when it is my country's flag that runs a bit higher than the others. All in good sportsmanship that is. Nice one. I hope all is well with you and yours. As always, thank you for sharing.:)
