Being an Olympian must be difficult. you train basically your whole life for a shot at competing on the highest level, against the rest of the world every 4 years. That must be exhausting.
For the winners of these events; jubilation. For the losers and non-medalists, anger? sadness? depression?
It’s bad enough that these guys won’t win a medal.. but now they also have to cope with what I can only assume is debilitating pain and extreme discomfort .
This is what happens when your body just can’t handle what you’re throwing at it..
