There is a peculiar phenomenon in sport that champion athletes talk about. For want of a better expression, we can call it the Post Olympic Gold Depression. Athletes train years for that one moment, all their energies are focussed on winning that one event, it becomes a mission in life. When you train, you have a purpose, when you eat, even when you sleep, you have a purpose. Winning thereafter produces an explosion of emotions. There cannot be a greater feeling.
