From not giving up hope till the last ball in a cricket match to snatching win from the clutches of the opposition. We have come across several examples of a never-give-up attitude from prominent sports personalities.
A video of a high-school girl has created a stir on social media. Her determined attitude and commitment to achieving the goal has been winning hearts across the internet.
The school girl, identified as Abigail Dennis of Old Tappan, participated in a high school sports event. And left the spectators amazed by her performance. She won a 100-meter hurdle race even after falling down at the initial stage.
A person sitting in the audience managed to capture the whole race in his lenses. And the video has become a prime example of a never-give-up attitude for social media users.
The incident happened at the Bergen County Championships in Old Tappan in May this year. The footage of the sprint has been shared by Good News Movement on their official Instagram page. Without any doubt, the spirit of the kid has been earning much praise from the viewers.
Dennis pulled off a fast start to the race. After smoothly clearing the first hurdle, she made a blunder. A misjudgment of the distance while leaping over the second hurdle led her to crash on it. Even after tumbling onto the track, Dennis immediately stood up and sprinted to the top of her speed.
She went past her fellow racers one by one. However, no one was ready for the stunning climax. She dashed over the remaining hurdles at ease and crossed the finishing line first.
