Dr. Glenn Cunningham: Greatness of determination
Once an 8-year-old child was badly burned in a school fire. His legs were badly burned. Doctors said he would never walk. The whole flesh of his feet was burnt. When he came home from the hospital, his mother would massage his feet daily and take him to a nearby ground to move on a hill chair. There was a lot of conviction in that child, his determination power was very much appreciated. He believed that no matter what happens, he will run.
One day when his mother left him sitting in a wheelchair, he dropped himself from that chair and started dragging himself. He continued to do this every day and gradually some life started coming to his feet. He started to stand up and then started walking very slowly. Then he started walking as usual. Then he started running.
One day he became the fastest runner in America to run a mile. She set a world record in the 1500 m race. He was none other than Dr. Glenn Cunningham. It is a tribute to Cunningham’s resolve.
‘Himalayan victory’ at the age of sixty-eight
Chandraprabha Aitwal of Uttarkashi set the precedent, hoisting the flag on the 6133 m high peak Shrikant. 68-year-old Chandraprabha of Uttarkashi grew up playing in the lap of the Atwal mountains and fall in love with mountains when she grew. Even at this stage of age, Chandraprabha’s spirits are so high that he has set an example by hoisting the flag on Srikanth, the 6133 m high peak of the Himalayas.
Chandraprabha, who led a team of eight women climbers, became so enamored with the mountains that they did not even marry. Chandraprabha, who has 40 years’ experience of mountaineering, has done mountaineering in many other countries.
This climber has measured the height of mountains in Nepal, China, Japan. Chandraprabha is still in a hurry to not hoist the flag on Mount Everest. She told that she was selected for Everest’s mission thrice but she could not complete them.
Wilma Rudolph: Disability lost
She was born into a poor family. When she was just four years old, she had severe pneumonia and fever, which led to polio. The doctor put her in a ‘brace’ on the leg and said that now she would never be able to walk with her feet. Wilma’s mother always encouraged her to use her God-given ability and work courageously. W. Rudolph was a very courageous girl. To give up as if she did not know. At the age of nine, contrary to the advice of doctors, he removed the dress from his foot and started walking slowly on his feet.
She participated in the race at the age of 13. She was repeatedly defeated in the race. But one day came when she came first.
At the age of 15, she went to Tennessee State University. There she met a coach named Temple, she told the coach that I want to be the fastest runner in the world. The coach, seeing his dedication, loyalty, and determination, said that “no one can stop you and I will help you in this, I will train you.”
She won 3 Gold Medal
The day also came, which W. Rudolph was eagerly waiting for. She was participating in the 1960 Olympic Games. She was confronted by a runner named Jutta Heine, who had never lost. The first race was 100 m. Wilma defeated Jutta and won his first gold medal.
In the second race of 200 m, Wilma also defeated Jutta and won her second gold medal. The third race was the 400 m Beton Relay Race. Here she was also competing against Jutta Heine. In this race, the fastest runner is placed in the end. When Beton was given to her after three runners running here, the baton fell from her hand, but as soon as Wilma saw Jutta running, she immediately picked up the baton and ran like a machine at incredible speed. In this way, he also won the third gold medal.
It was a historical event. She made history, she realized the dream of becoming the world’s fastest running woman.
She made a history
This act of handicapped woman is recorded in history and is a great inspiration for those who want to win.
