Olympic Dream - Fantacized and Achieved

Maarten van der Weijden, the remarkable leukemia survivor and Olympic 10K Marathon Swim gold medalist, is a great interview with comments such as,

"I am trying to spread the word about my story - you can do anything you want after surviving cancer. If you have cancer it is not the end, if you are lucky there is a whole world out there for you still."

"Before the Games I was fantasizing about winning the gold medal, because you have to fantasize 100 times about something before you can win it, I was thinking I would be jumping up and down or screaming, but when it came to it, I just finished and felt amazed."

So were we all.
