Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Thursday, December 16, 2004
Oooooold man"Jag tänker hänga på ett år till, jag ser det hela som en kul utmaning."
In English, that is:
"I plan to hang around for another year, I think of it as a fun challenge."
I'm quoting Hakan Eriksson from a newspaper article about the silver medalist from the sprint WOC. Eriksson is 43 years old.
The sports-talk-radio-view-of-the-world would certainly see Eriksson as sad. Lots of folks expect an athlete to go out on top. Don't hang around, retire with dignity. Michael Jordan shouldn't have made a comeback, for example. Personally, I like to see people hanging around as long as they're having fun, as long as they're enjoying the challenge. I'm pretty sure I believed that even when I was 20. posted by Michael | 1:19 PM
