Insane Danny Way
Danny Way (born April 15, 1974) is an American professional skateboarder. In X Games 14 – Los Angeles, California (July 31 – August 3, 2008), Danny Way was participating in the ‘Big Air’ competition. Before this, he had won in all the X Games Big Air competitions he had participated in.
In his 2nd of the 5 runs, his shins clipped on the edge of the quarter-pipe after a 20+ foot freefall, which the commentators referred to as the “second worst fall ever at the X Games”.
Nick Vujicic stands tall
Nick was born on 4th December, 1982, without arms and legs. However, there was no medical reason for it. His parents did their best to give him a life of an ordinary person without any physical deformity, and gave him every opportunity to live life to the fullest.
But it wasn’t so easy for him. He used to feel helpless and was so depressed that he attempted suicide a couple of times at a very young age. However, he soon realized that he did not want to leave his loved ones with the burden of guilt that would result from his suicide.
Michael Jordan went ahead step-by-step
Michael, during his university days, in the basketball summer camp, impressed all with his speed and skill. But the coach had a dull hope of him qualifying for the university team group as Michael did not have the minimum height required. So when the list of names for the university team was announced, all of Michael’s mates who were at least 198cm in height were in the list, but Michael wasn’t.
This moment had a big impact on Michael’s life. He was so startled that he went through the list several times, feeling sure that his coach had mistakenly left his name out. At that time, his mom came forward to offer him an advice, “The best thing you could do now is to prove to the coach that he had made a mistake.”
