For years, US gymnasts Jordyn Wieber and Aly Raisman have been each other’s best friend and each other’s biggest competitor. They have grown up together. They have traveled together, worked together, and shared the dream with each other. As best friends they have come to a hard point in life. When only one of them can go to the Olympics it’s a cause for distress in both of them.
When Wieber was knocked out of contention for the all-around final, Raisman had to deal with elation and devastation at the same time. One friend’s greatest joy was another friend’s greatest disappointment.
It’s not often we hear about love between top competitors. There is still hope for this world! I like the news stories that tell about the good things.
This is a place to share a story about love. What have you seen lately. Please share the feeling!
