    KEEP UP ATHLETS OF THE WORLD

    The Sochi Olympian Games are over
    But the great moments that lingers is not!
    The enthusiasm display was contagious…
    At the moments of the competitions,
    And will stay longer warming hearts!

    Thank you athletes of the world,
    For the exhilarating moments!
    Everyone should applaud your efforts,
    Insistence, practices and dedication.
    We really, really enjoy it all!

    It is good to see people united…
    Because we people, loves sports!
    Even competition is the highlights.
    Someone had to get the rewards or medals!
    For the winners my congratulations!

    Even thou risk of accidents is high!
    All the tears and sweet was worth it.
    We’re born to compete… such is life!
    We’re enamored with Ah-ha! Moments.
    Keep it up athletes of the world!
