    Question What makes a Champion?

    The thing that makes a champion is obvious enough; It isn't any mystic prestidigitator's stuff.

    It's nothing more than giving to whatever be the chore, the power that is in you and just a little more.

    It isn't any wizardry; It's not a magic gift; It's merely lifting honestly the load you have tolift;

    Or, in the game you're playing, it is using all your store....Of grit and nerve and energy - andj ust a little more.

    The thing that makes a champion is simple, plain, and clear; It's never being "almost 1", "just about 1", or even pretty near.

    It's summoning the utmost from your spirit's inner core....and giving every bit of it, and just a little more.

    That little more - how much it is...as deep and wide and far as that enormous emptiness from a molehill to a star,

    The gulf between the earthbound and the eagles as they soar, the champions who give their best, and just a little more.

    Yes, and Billy, as I get to know certain folks from AR better, I know they (including you) are real champions not only of lifting but of real life and the heart !

    Thanks to my friends on AR !

    A champion is someone that keeps getting back up when they are knocked down...

    Well Freddie says:

    "I've paid my dues
    Time after time
    I've done my sentence
    But committed no crime
    And bad mistakes
    I've made a few
    I've had my share of sand
    Kicked in my face
    But I've come through

    And we mean to go on and on and on and on

    We are the champions - my friends
    And we'll keep on fighting
    Till the end
    We are the champions
    We are the champions
    No time for losers
    'Cause we are the champions of the World

    I've taken my bows
    And my curtain calls
    You brought me fame and fortune
    And everything that goes with it
    I thank you all
    But it's been no bed of roses
    No pleasure cruise
    I consider it a challenge before
    The whole human race
    And I ain't gonna lose

    And we mean to go on and on and on and on

    We are the champions - my friends
    And we'll keep on fighting
    Till the end
    We are the champions
    We are the champions
    No time for losers
    'Cause we are the champions of the World

    We are the champions - my friends
    And we'll keep on fighting
    Till the end
    We are the champions
    We are the champions
    No time for losers
    'Cause we are the champions"

    a champion has no pain
    a champion has no fear
    a champion has only love for the game
    a champion doesnt know what it means to quit.

    (ie: kurt angle is a true champion, he won an olympic gold medal with a broken neck.)
