Lynsey Sharp of Scotland fights off illness to win silver.
In our opinion she is the definition of persisting through adversity to achieve your best.
Here’s a quote from the link below.
“…Even right up to this morning I was in hospital in the village until 5:30. I haven’t slept at all. I was throwing up all night. I had a drip in my arm.
This was my everything and there was no way I was going to go through everything I have been through not to get a medal tonight.”
