Danvers was blessed with amazing athletic ability, which she converted into an Olympic medal. This is more than
most amazing athletes manage, so from that point on she had nothing to prove. -- Although the hope for more and
greater glory is always there, of course.
So, my admiration for and sympathy with Danvers is very great.
But as for the story in The People, I find it more-or-less unreadable. This is probably because I am thick,
but if anyone can give me a translation I'd be grateful.
(Thanks Kermit for posting it. It is just the journalistic story itself that makes me feel queasy.)
If I understand correctly, the circumstances it refers to occured 1 year ago when, as we know, Danvers picked up
a niggling but dispiriting injury.
Is there anything else in the story? Besides a non-chronological assortment of apparent quotes and recollections,
mostly on very private matters? ...Structured, from the look of it, purely to sell newspapers, and with no regard for
conveying meaning, let alone the human subject.
