Kenyan runner Abel Mutai was just a few meters from the finish line, but got confused in the signs and stopped, thinking he was finishing.
The Spaniard from BA, Ivan Fernandez, immediately followed him and, realizing what was happening, started shouting at the Kenyan to keep running. Mutai did not know Spanish and did not understand.
Realizing what was happening, Fernandez pushed Mutay to victory.
The reporter asked Ivan, “Why did you do that?” Ivan replied: “I dream that one day we will have such a public life, where we will push ourselves and others to victory.”
The reporter insisted: “But why did you allow the Kenyan to win?” Ivan replied: “I did not let him win, he won himself. The race was his. ”
The reporter insisted and asked again: “But you could have won!” Ivan looked at him and replied: “But then what will be the meaning of my victory? What will be the value of this medal? What will my mother think of her? ”
Values are passed down from generation to generation. What values do we teach our children? Most of us use people’s weaknesses instead of helping them strengthen their strengths.
