Leszek Blanik

I haven’t gotten to watch much of the summer Olympics, but tonight I saw just a glimpse into the heart of a real winner.  Lezsek Blanik was the first man in history to win a gold medal in gymnastics from Poland.  When they took pictures of him, instead of holding a flag or a “thumbs up,” he held up a picture of his son.  I just thought that was awesome.  What a heart! What priorities!  You know that that little boy will one day talk about that very moment.  There have been lots of great stories, and this one won’t make lots of headlines, but it’s one that touched my heart.
