Double Match

It happens only once in a lifetime ..

I wish yO
u a very Wonderful Day!

Today is special for this someone definitely.
Caught the Beijing 2008 Olympics on TV and saw this amazing performance by this young man from a war-torn country Afghanistan.

Rohullah Nikpai (aged 20) won a Bronze medal which is the first medal for his country.
This is special because despite the lack of resources and facilities, this young man has proved to us that sheer passion, faith and pride can bring you far.

This is Rohullah (left) practising with his brother in front of their humble home in Kabul, Afghanistan

Rohullah beat World Champion Juan Antonio Ramos from Spain in a spectacular match that kept the crowds in awe. Both men cried afterwards for opposite reasons and it certainly was an Olympic moment that will forever be etched in my mind.
