“Look across all sport and observe the truly great. All had this zest for combat, this taste for being truly tested. All wished to explore the limits of their own possibilities.
Time after time we are forced to wonder why one great talent succeeds… and another still greater talent falls short? The reason is not mere “the will to win”. Rather it is the will to be tested at the very highest level. It is the ability to not only dwell on the far edge of sporting possibility, but to hold one’s balance…and to relish the proximity of the void.”
