and years of training have brought
them to this moment;

the spotlight on them;
the entire world watching,
united as one

behind the athletes
standing at the starting gate
of Olympic fame -

love for the sport shines
as bright as the medals they
have already one

in their golden dreams;
the pressure is off; nothing
can shake their focus:

Hope remains for mankind; we
watch greatness happen.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.
