You know those inspirational stories of individual courage and triumph you see at every olympics? Share them here so we can all feel the awe.

 

 

I saw one last night. An Irish guy, gymnast, Keiran Behan. Wheelchair bound as a child and told he'd never walk again. Well he walked. High bar accident left him with a brain injury and again he was told he'd never walk again. What an amazing effort to make it to the olympics as a gymnast after that.

 

He didn't qualify for the final but I don't really think he minded that much. He was all smiles and happy tears.
