You & Me Firm Together, Nothing Can Stand in the Way... Ever

Just the other day, I happened to watch the live telecast of the women's 5000 metres final at the London Olympics. The finishing line was just a few metres away and an Ethiopian runner was giving it her all, to be the first to cross the finishing line. She had left the other runners way behind... she ran and she ran and finally crossed the finishing line... first! Meserat Defar had indeed engraved her name on the Olympic gold medal. The moment realization dawned upon her that she had indeed won the race, she let out a heart rending cry, more out of disbelief than out of joy; and in the very next moment she demonstrated before the whole world watching her at that moment, the reason behind her winning the race.
