Juan David, 22, is all smiles as he takes the podium to receive his second gold medal.
Winning isn’t new to Juan, a decorated athlete. He is the proud recipient of four Olympic medals: two gold, one silver, and one bronze.
Sure, he might not be the most decorated athlete of all time. His medal count doesn’t come close to that of Michael Phelps. And his 100-meter time doesn’t match that of Usain Bolt, the current Olympic record-holder from Jamaica.
But life isn’t just about the finish line.
To truly appreciate crossing the finish line, you must understand where the race started -- and what obstacles were faced along the way.
