Winning medals at the Olympics is pretty sweet. But like anything in life, taking part in the biggest competition of your life can throw some major curve-balls at you.
During the triathlon event, Canadian Simon Whitfield crashed his bicycle and took down Costa Rica’s Leonardo Chacón Corrales’ in the process. But rather than getting angry about the accident, Corrales took to Facebook to send a sweet message to his Canadian competitor.
This is exactly what the Olympics should be. Recognizing that it’s all about camaraderie and sportsmanship, this athlete is the epitome of class.
