英语励志短文:I Will Run to the Goal 我要跑向终点(双语阅读)
I Will Run to the Goal
It was a classic night. The noisy Mexico City gradually calmed down. The main stadium of Olympic track and field competition was enveloped in the darkness.
After he finished making the scenes the marathon winners received the trophies and marked the victory, Greenspan, the world famous newsreel producer, found the stadium empty. It was time for him to return to the hotel for a rest. He was about to leave when he suddenly saw a bandaged man with his right leg stained with the blood ran into the stadium. This man ran lamely out of breath, but he didn’t stop. After he ran along the runway for a circle and got to the goal, he collapsed on the ground...
Greenspan guessed this was a marathon athlete. Out of curiosity, he went over to ask why the athlete wanted to run to the goal with such a difficulty.
The young man called Kowari from Tanzania replied gently, “That my country sent me here from more than 20,000 kilometers is not let me get off the mark in the competition, but makes me complete the game. I want to run to the goal, though I have fallen behind all other runners, but I have a sacred goal like them： I will run to the goal. Though the audience won’t cheer me any more, my motherland is watching me intently from behind...”
Tears welled up in Greenspan's eyes. Soon, he spread the most touching scene in the history of the Olympic Games to every corner of the world.
Life should have a dream of reaching the peak, yet we should understand not everybody has the ability to do it.The most important is not whether we can reach the peak but whether we have made the greatest efforts-to reach the goal in the mind is a success.
