Knowing that the bulls were not a very great team, in the matter of winning, Jordan said this after being drafted, “I hate to lose, my number one goal this year is to help make this team into a winner. And I want have fun.” (Rupp 60) Going into his rookie year, Jordan was already an Olympic athlete (Buzzle.com). Jordan’s appearance was very different and significant.

Armstrong then went on to ride a broken bike past all other racers and win the stage. Lance is arguably the greatest and most courageous athlete to ever walk the earth. If it was not for his near death experience he would have never had the drive to work at racing and become a more determined person. These words by Armstrong sum up how much his life changed from the moment he was diagnosed. “Birthdays don't really matter much anymore ... for me, I sort of have a new birthday and that's October 2nd, the day I was diagnosed, ... the day we all sort of look to and mark these milestones by one year, two year, five year, 10 year.
It is most widely known for its fine arts, computing, engineering, and imaging science programs; several fine arts programs routinely rank in the national "Top 10" according to the US News & World Report) and that’s when he became a part of deaf world and everything went easy for him because there’s deaf people that can communicate with each other. There was one thing he went for national championship. He sure had so many fans that call him “Hammer”. During his final game, he was against a two-time national champion, Jason Sloan and then he won, five to six. The “Hammer”, Matt Hamill was the first deaf person for NCCA Wrestling Team Championship, so he joined UFC Light Heavyweight Champion for six years and then he decided to retire after 13 fights in 2011.
Mr. Cottrell was quoted directly saying that he used Ben-Gay throughout his long distance run. Mr. Cottrell set a new transcontinental running record after running for 48 days, through 14 states. The ad states that during that time he used 3.3 pounds of Ben-Gay and that Ben-Gay helped him to reach his “lifelong dream” of the transcontinental running record. The use of Mr. Cottrell in the both an image and a powerful quotation, definitely provide the effective use of ethos in this ad. The transcontinental run is one of the most grueling races a runner can attempt.
Then he began to run for them. He gained ambition and as he was running for the Marines he felt like he was running with all his friends and family that have died. The Marines thought he was good enough to join the U.S. Olympic Running Team, in doing this; he totally redeems himself in the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan and wins the 10,000 meter race.

Overall, it was a very good and interesting movie that I had a lot of mixed emotions. The cutest scene was after the movie was done, it showed the real man at 80 years old running in Japan because he was a runner. He got into the Olympics when younger because he was one of the best and that scene of the real man running (because it was based on a true story) it was so amazingly cute seeing the old guy, I just wanted to jump in the
Even winning did not shatter the stereotype; racists just created a new one. When Jesse Owens won four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, shocking the Nazi hosts, a diametrically opposed but equally noxious myth became cemented: black athletes succeed because of their supposed natural athleticism. Black success in every aspect of sports, particularly as
Crossing the finishline noticing what a horrible race I just ran placing 4th out of 6. Hitting me that I could not attend nationals. Eyes started to feel heavy , watering slowly but surely.

The score was 2-1, playing in the last few minutes of the game, he wanted to make one more goal, faking out the defense moving the ball down field, he does a trick shot and he scores! With 4 second left, he scored one last goal and won the game! Everyone runs to the field cheering for Jack and The Warriors! College scouts swarming the field, trying to get Jack’s attention. Every head coach handing out their business card to him, every coach wanted him to be a part of their team, but he only had one team he was interested in being a part of.
