Great story. Then as now, I am awed by the commitment by these athletes. Few will reap significant financial rewards or recognition. Most have deferred their future careers and relationships. Yet despite the struggle there will be a few hundred men and women lining up Saturday to push their limits. Maybe we will see some surprises.
