This post isn’t about a new event. It’s about an event video that’s been making the rounds on Facebook lately … and it deserves any positive attention it gets. The YouTube video is of Heather Dorniden, who was leading a 600-meter race in the finals of a college championship….
The video is a perfect example of the message to never give up in a competition regardless of what has happened.
I’ve always appreciated the character training sports gave my children. I have a category of posts here with competition helps from my family’s experiences with international figure skating. My post “Be a Good Sports Parent…” has ideas that worked for my family and many others.
Of course, the message in the video can be applied to any competition … not just to a sports competition. What is your favorite part of the character education children can receive from sports or another type of competition?
