Wanna win? Have fun!

The Olympic winter games this year offered an extremely rare event in sports history: An athlete won gold in two separate sports.

Czech snowboarder Ester Ledecka shocked everyone by winning gold on skis in the Super-G event and then went on to also win gold in  snowboarding parallel giant slalom.

That’s amazing in itself, but what I love even more is her attitude towards her profession:

“For sure I want to win every race, but the first thing is to enjoy and to have good fun with what I’m doing and my sports.”

Her coach agrees, saying:

“The joy that she has for riding, the joy that she has for training and working hard is unmatched.”

What a refreshing change from the “Winning is all that matters” mentality.
