These are the stories of top athletes who made history not only for their achievements but for their values as well. Who fought for the ideals of fair play and equality, going against the prejudices of their times, and against all odds. They fought for athletics and for life, and although that wasn’t their intention, they inspired millions with their faith, passion and competitive skills.
These twenty stories of Olympic athletes show that even though they did not manage to receive a medal, or in some cases race in the finals, they will remain in our hearts and minds as brilliant examples of ethos and will.
