Getting to your own ‘Olympics’.

Without doubt Alasdair Donaldson is  at the top of his game for Tekken 7.
Currently there is a large amount of speculation about esports becoming an official sporting code at the Olympics.

Personally I think that such a move would be good for both esports and the Olympics, but that is not what this article is about.

This article is about the dedication that athletes need to have to get to the top. The Olympics represents all that is good about sport and the very highest levels of sporting prowess and sportsmanship.

In my opinion, to get to the Olympics, or to the top of any field, a person has to be absolutely single-minded. Parties, family gatherings, and other social occasions are attended only when they fit into the schedule of the athlete. Thus even birthdays and made-up holidays take second place o the training and competition schedules of the athlete who is dedicated to get to the top.

Work comes first, pleasure after!

Thus, to truly get to the top of any field, the person must make huge personal sacrifices in order to reach excellence. No worthwhile achievement is attained without an incredible amount of sacrifice and personal self-investment.
