His reasoning for this was that going from an American hero to a disgrace was punishment enough (Kelly and Rao). According to her judge, Judge Karas, “athletes in society ... serve as role models to children around the world. When there is a widespread level of cheating, it sends all the wrong messages.” Jones informed the court that her trainer started giving her steroids in 1999, telling her it was something else. She continued this use for two more years. She also, admitted that she had been taking the steroid, the clear, during the Summer Olympics.
An instance of this is when Judy preservers through her police training lessons. At the beginning of training, she was the worst performing cadet in the program, constantly falling behind on the obstacle courses and unable to spar with her peers in training. Despite these shortcomings, she holds on, and perseveres, training much harder than her fellow cadets. In the end, she finishes out on top, beating all the other animals at the obstacle courses and sparring, earning her the title of valedictorian. At graduation, she is assigned to the most prestigious district, Zootopia, only to be given the role of meter maid of the city.
There’s only so much you can learn about dribbling a ball or scoring touchdowns. In gymnastics, however, each level constructs a foundation in which future skills are rooted. Needless to say, when I reached level 8 the routines I learned were challenging. My conversations systematically revolved around my inability to perform “crazy-hard” moves and combinations. Years of vigorous training reached a plateau, baffling my coaches and shattering my drive.
In the beginning of my Freshman year, I joined my high school’s rugby team. When I joined the team I had no background knowledge on the rules or how to play rugby. My first rugby season was very frustrating and challenging. Within the first week almost every girl excelled due to their knowledge on proper technique; while I struggled tremendously. I decided to stay and continue to learn how to play rugby because I believe in striving to achieve my desires, but at times I felt stuck in the same place on the same level.
FLIP FLOP TO THE TOP: How Gymnastics Has Shaped My Life It started off slow and it nagged at me for years. I could feel it eating away at my skin and I knew that someday I would succumb to its demands. The girls with the tightly pinned back hair wore suits of red, white, and blue. I was glued to the screen as they stood at attention ready to enter the arena. They leapt in the most graceful way and I tried to copy their balletic movements.
According to Davidsons essay 1.5 million students are hazed each year. And at least 100 kids have died from hazing incidents. Courtney Davidson relates to the quote because when she was a junior she was a good person and knew that hazing was bad because she had experienced the pain and didn’t ever want to cause anyone that pain. When she became a senior she experienced the dark side because she had became a hazer and although she knew it was wrong and how it would hurt others a dark side took over her light side and she continued to haze and hurt others. Davidson may have only hazed the underclassmen because she was an underclassman
When a person hears the word obstacle, high school cheerleading rarely would come to mind. For me that’s all that I think of. My last season of high school cheerleading, in a nutshell, was short and bitter. Life threw injuries to all members of my stunt group, girls were caddy and spread rumors, but most importantly, I didn 't have fun. Around the beginning of November, I got a concussion.
This I Am I believe that competitive cheerleading taught me how to believe in myself. I couldn’t count how many times I have told myself that I could not do something. When I was twelve-years old I took up a love for competitive cheerleading. Every time I told myself I couldn’t do something, I wouldn’t even try. My coach told me it was a “mental block” and it was common in athletes that throw themselves in mid-air hoping to land on their feet.
No one can avoid failure. No person has ever been 100% successful at everything. But people hate to talk about their failures, and try to avoid it at all cost. Having participated in the interscholastic sport of wrestling, I have been given many opportunities to succeed or fail. I generally succeed most of the time.

Just as I was about to overtake Preston, I lost control of my footing and plop! Down I went, humiliated, as the ball sped away in the opposite direction, my victory along with it. The morning had started out absolutely fine. Everyone in Miss McKenzie’s fifth grade class was thrilled to see what Mrs. Orsillo had in store for our last PE class of our lower school careers. Mrs. Orsillo was a very solid lady, a stereotypical gym teacher, and not many people liked her ‘tough love’ style of teaching.
