 A race is an excellent metaphor for life. The apostle Paul, drawing on his knowledge of the Olympic games, writes to his young protégé Timothy, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7 NIV). A successful race, like a successful life, involves a good measure of solid faith, steady effort, patient endurance, practiced discipline, and successfully coping with highs and lows.

Today, we continue our terrific LivingFuelTV series Fueling Olympic Dreams with 2012 Summer Olympic Games triathlete Manny Huerta. Building on Manny’s story from previous episodes, Manny shares the specifics of how he overcame negative self-talk and discovered how to supercharge performance in the most important race of his life.

In less than two months, on July 27th, the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games begin. Every four years, nations send their top athletes to compete for gold, silver and bronze medals against the very best in the world on sport’s grandest stage. Each Olympiad, the compelling and emotional stories of Olympic athletes overcoming incredible obstacles to reach the pinnacle of their sport rivet viewers worldwide.

Today on LivingFuelTV, meet Manny Huerta, member of the United States men’s Olympic triathlon team. His other credentials include the Pan American Games silver medalist and the 2011 USA Triathlon Elite Athlete of the Year. Manny recently sat down with me for a series of fascinating interviews entitled Fueling Olympic Dreams. Manny’s sport of triathlon is one of endurance, strength and tenacity. How fitting that this also describes his amazing journey beginning as a young boy in communist Cuba to proudly wearing the bold USA letters across his chest this summer in London.
