Reposting from @gregjrutherford - Three months ago I started walking again. One month ago I put spikes on for the first time. Saturday I became national indoor champion.
Obviously jumping 7.80m isn’t impressive, not by the standards that I set myself. But the above caption puts it into context. This is just the start. I’m like Rocky in Rocky III. But please no one kill one of my mates. .

Олимпиада навсегда в моем сердце. Когда то это было и моей историей. 3недели Игр стоят 4лет жестокой и тяжелой работы. Четыре года труда и всего 3секунды на прыжок. Нечестно, но таков этот спорт. Такова цена бескрайней лёгкости полёта. Я горжусь вами ребята. Теми кто стал, теми кто упал. Вы были там, вы теперь стали легендами! #olympian is always an Olympian #olympicgames

Happy 3rd #birthday to our little warrior, the youngest member of our animal kingdom, our future #Olympian (or mountain climber), the lover of sugar, hater of sleep and pants, taker of brother’s toys, inventor of the no-hands-sleeping-while-drinking move, stealer of mommy’s heart (among other things) and happiest little bugger on earth...our Colbster.
You couldn’t wait to get here, and I can’t wait to see what you do next. Keep doing you, baby boy—I’ll keep watching and continue to be amazed. Thank you for changing my life. ❤️❤️❤️ #diggingbeing3#preemiesrule#birthdayboy#oneofakind

Moji Oluwa is a Professional Natural Bodybuilding Champion originally from Nigeria but now living in California in the U.S.A. He is also an Olympian having competed in Weightlifting for Nigeria in the Olympic and Commonwealth games. Moji has won over 40 bodybuilding titles yet his greatest achievements to date were captaining his country at the Olympic Games and winning 2 Gold medals and a Bronze at the Commonwealth games.
Moji has overcome many obstacles to get where he is today. He first was inspired to become bigger and stronger when he saw Arnold Schwarzenegger in a film at the age of 12, he was determined to succeed but told us that because he was very skinny and not very athletic and was also prone to lots of injuries, almost everyone told him not to follow his dreams because he simply just wasn’t built for lifting. He worked harder than ever and despite continuing to have injuries, he overcome every challenge he faced to eventually become victorious. Eventually he was able to fulfil his dream of coming to America on a weightlifting scholarship before competing in the Olympics and eventually going on to meet Arnold at Arnold’s own event. By this time Moji had become one of the most respected strength athletes in the world, following neatly in his hero’s footsteps. as someone else who had come all the way to the U.S.A to follow their dream.
When asked about his faith and why he was happy to be a part of the Dight for the Fatherless Moji told us “God played every role in my success, because without my faith I would have given up years ago. God gave me all the tools I needed to overcome all the adversities I had ever he then said “I know what it feels like to not really have my Dad in my life, I want to help by mentoring the children and use my experience as a tool to help inspire them.

Day 14: Jesse Ownes
Jesse Owens, also known as "The Buckeye Bullet," was an African-American Track and Field athlete who won four gold medals and broke two world records at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. Owens specialized in the sprints and the long jump and was recognized in his lifetime as "perhaps the greatest and most famous athlete in track and field history". His achievement of setting three world records and tying another in less than an hour at the 1935 Big Ten track meet in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has been called "the greatest 45 minutes ever in sport" and has never been equalled. At the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, Owens achieved international fame by winning four gold medals: 100 meters, 200 meters, long jump, and 4 × 100 meter relay. Jesse Owens was never invited to the White House for his accomplishments or recognized by Franklin D. Roosevelt in any way instead it was Adolf Hitler who gave Owens a special commemorative gift. .
