I noticed a bit of banter on Twitter and in forums over the past few days about the validity of Cadel Evan's hero status after his legendary win at (in?) the Tour De France.
While I agree that a lot of sporting personalities are put on a pedestal because of their skills rather than their substance, I think Cadel has the goods.
I won't lie, I don't know if he has done any philanthropic work but -
He had a dream
He worked hard
Gained strength from his set backs
and his dream came true
I care very little for the sport but I have so much admiration for this man and because of that we should try to fit a little bit of yellow into our lives and celebrate dreams coming true!
