What an athlete lives for.

by Rob Blundred

People don't play sports because its fun. Ask any athlete, most of them hate it, but they couldn't imagine their life without it. Its part of them, the hate/love relationship. It's what they live for. They live for the practices, parties, cheers, long bus rides, invitationals, countless pairs of different types of shoes, water, Gatorade, & coaches you hate, but appreciate.

They live for the way it feels when you beat the team next to you by 1 pt. in overtime & you know those 2 extra sprints you ran in practice were worth it. They live for the way you become a family with your team, they live for the countless songs you sing in your head when your running ALL those suicides. They live for the competition, they live for the friends, the practices, the memories, the pain, its who they are. It's who we are....

I love to play cricket and football more than other sports. So I find much time to play my favorite sports. An athlete’s life is completely dedicated to sports. They can’t live without it. They are spending most of their life time to play their most loved sports events. Electronic Medical Records

Great sports quote
by: logan warne

That is probably one of the best sports quotes that I have ever heard in my life. There is nothing like being an athlete.

I am a die-hard athlete and I have to agree with everything that is said in this poem. I especially agree with the love/hate relationship thing. You absolutely nailed this one!!! GREAT JOB!!!

Excellent insights into sports
by: Laura Love

I enjoyed your comments on what an athlete lives for and your description of the love/hate relationship with sports. I think it's true, even though I'm not an athlete. I think what you say is also probably true of any endeavor in life in which a person strives for excellence.
