Never Be Afraid and Never Give UpChad Michael Older | сен 22, 2013 | North America: Minnesota I was coaching two Special Olympics athletes in the pentathlon. One was getting down on himself and he wanted to quit in the sport in the middle of the tournament. I said no and I talked him and got him to believe in himself, and he ended getting a gold medal in that tournament, which was a state tournament. And my other athlete finished third, all on their own. I will never let them give up on themselves.
