The Great Competitor
By Grantland Rice
Beyond the winning and the goal, beyond the glory and the fame,
He feels the flame within his soul, born of the spirit of the game,
And where the barriers may wait, built up by the opposing gods,
He finds the thrill in bucking fate and riding down the endless odds,
Where others wither in the fire or fall below some raw mishap,
Where others lag behind or tire and break beneath the handicap.
He finds a new and deeper thrill to take him on the uphill spin,
Because the test is greater still, and something he can revel in.
