Character

Forced against his desire, and made to punch, and jab

Michael Bentt never intended to be one of boxing world’s fab

In a sport where ‘colour’ mattered more than aesthetics and quality

Surya Bonaly failed to buck the trend yet found a passion giving her glee

Jean Van De Velde’s meltdown at the very last hole cost him the Open

Only to open the Doors to a world where peace, tranquility and service did beckon

In the vocabulary of the daft these athletes may have been losers from within

They are true champions possessing statures Gargantuan.
