He out-trains his mates, 4 hours more everyday.
He out-diets his kind, to maintain an athletic gait.
He out-paces his peers, he has covered more kilometres on the pitch this season.
He out-jumps his type, 4.9 centimetres more on three significant occasions now (Copa dey Rel vs Barca, 2011, La Liga vs Malaga 2012, now, Euro 2016 vs Wales), to score.
He out-wants the victory, evidently as his lucid emotions testify.
He out-sprints, out-gyms, out-drills his colleagues to be in own league.
He goes through grit to get fit for feats, ‘cos he hates defeat.
Well, he is getting the result, innit?
Hi team’s triumph in France yesterday, was simply one of his rewards for being an undying, unyielding and insatiable zest for success.
Cristiano Ronaldo is known for being obsessed with his training routine. There’s a particular quote from Sir Alex Ferguson, which illustrates this phenomenon perfectly: “There’s no fluke about it. I see Ronaldo practising all the time in training.”
Anytime I consider the many painstaking sacrifices and perennial successes of Cristiano #Ronaldo, and his athletic likes ditto Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams, Chris Froome, Usain Bolt, just to mention a fewer out of the few, the glorious words of the American great, Vince Lombardi, perch majestically on my soul:
“The Man On Top Of The Mountain Didn’t Fall There”
See, I’ve learnt, that, even grace, is neither lazy nor lax.
So, dear blessed ones, for glory, gut your guts on it…that thing you do.
Good morning, Good afternoon, have a great week.
