I remember I was sitting in my room one day and I was changing around the channels on the television. A documentary was on, it was about a runner. His name, Oscar Pistorius. Oscar began running when he was a teenager.
His first run, he was quite nervous and he closed his eyes. The bell rang for the race to start and Oscar began to run with his eyes closed. He accidentally crossed a line during the run and was disqualified. Oscar was hurt but he learned to run better and better at each race. Soon he was getting attention from press and getting sponsors from all over the world. Now everyone one knows him and loves him!
Here is a video of him:
