64TEACHING VALUES SECTION 3 SHARING THE VALUES THROUGH SPORT AND THE OLYMPIC GAMES BEFORE YOU READ – QUESTIONS TO ASK What qualities do you think people need to have to successfully achieve their goals? What happens when they fail? READING The Long Road to Victory: Dan Jansen7 Of all the Olympic stories that teach us about perseverance, very few are as memorable as that of Dan Jansen. Most speed- skating victories are decided by a margin of 1/ 100th of a second. This victory took over a decade. The world first met Jansen at the 1984 Games in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, when the relatively unknown American placed an impressive 4th in the 500m race. In Calgary in 1988, he was favoured to win the 500m and 1,000m races. But fate had other plans. Jansen's sister had been suffering from leukaemia and died just minutes before race time. In his final conversation with her, he promised to win in her honour. But instead Jansen fell. Not just once, but in both races. He left Calgary empty- handed. Four years later Jansen was again favoured to win, this time in Albertville. But after a disappointing performance, he again left without a medal. In 1994, Jansen prepared for his fourth Olympic Games, in Lillehammer, Norway. He knew it would be his last chance and hoped he could put his past behind him once and for all. But on his first race, to the horror of everyone watching, Jansen slipped yet again during the 500m and finished 8th. Only one race remained. The last of his career. Four days after that unfortunate fall, the starting gun sounded for the start of the 1,000m. And everything magically fell into place. A decade of disappointment suddenly was erased as Jansen took first place and set a new world record. During the victory lap, he picked up his daughter and carried her around the ice. They had named her Jane, in honour of his late sister. The perfect ending to a story that has become an inspiration to athletes around the world. FOR DISCUSSION Explain why you think Dan Jansen persevered in his journey to win an Olympic medal. What aspects of the values of Olympism do his actions represent? AboveAlbertville 1992: Dan Jansen ( USA) was expected to win a gold medal in the men's 500m speed skating. He eventually finished fourth. THELONGROADTOVICTORY: ANATHLETE'SSTORY IN ANCIENT TIMES, AS TODAY, TO BE AN OLYMPIC ATHLETE WAS A SUPREME HONOUR. ANCIENT OLYMPIC CHAMPIONS WERE LOOKED AFTER BY THEIR FELLOW TOWNSFOLK FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES. ATHLETES TODAY WHO WIN MEDALS ARE ALSO HONOURED AND CELEBRATED IN THEIR COUNTRIES. TODAY, NEARLY 100,000 OLYMPIANS ( ATHLETES WHO HAVE COMPETED IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES) SPREAD THE SPIRIT OF OLYMPISM AROUND THE WORLD. 7 Adapted from International Olympic Committee Web Site.
