Since I can remember watching the Olympics I dreamed of participating and knew one day I would be there with all the other athletes from all the other countries, the excitement, the pounding hearts, the winners taking their place on the podium, the medals.
I knew my sports weren't currently included, but I was confident as the
years went by that someday at least one of them would be included and I
would finally be able to compete and make my family proud. Other sports
were added throughout the years, but not the three I had long awaited.
Alas, I had to come to terms to the fact that perhaps, even those who
were ordained for greatness may not have the chance. So, today, I give
up my dream to finally compete and win an Olympic medal, to march in the
opening ceremony, to be an Olympian. But, if anyone ever hears that
Baton Twirling, Hula-Hooping and/or Pogo Sticking have been added to the
lineup of Olympian events, please contact me immediately!
