We Have Special People Walking Among Us
At BigFreeBet.com we love sport! From football to curling, all across the world, there are people training to take part in games and matches every week. Now, every so often appears an athlete that rises above the rest; that seems to excel; that has something special. We call these, SUPER HUMANS!
These SUPERHUMANS are born gifted. Their genetic make-up has given them what it takes to be the best!
Still, it’s not easy to be a SUPERHUMAN. To fulfil your potential as a Superhuman, you need to dedicate your life to your chosen sport. You need to train right; eat right, and be focused. They say that the Olympics (World Cup and other Tournaments) are won on a rainy Tuesday morning in November. While “normal” people are going about their daily lives, these Superhumans are following a meticulous plan to reach their goal of winning – they do it quietly in the background, grinding away. When they don’t have media attention, you may forget that these Superhumans are living amongst us.
While many athletes thoroughly deserve the recognition of their achievements, we’ve selected 6 individuals from different backgrounds who definitely deserve the status of Superhuman.
Our 6 Superhumans
- Usain Bolt
- Michael Phelps
- Cristiano Ronaldo
- Simone Biles
- Chris Froome
- Ellie Simmonds
The first three, Usain Bolt, Micahel Phelps and Cristiano Ronaldo are household names due to their sports. However, we also selected a further 3 who are equally impressive but maybe just don’t hit the limelight so much.
Simone Biles – An American gymnast. At 19 years old (2017), Simone already has 19 Olympic and World Championship medals to her name! These include 4 Olympic golds! Having achieved this much before the age of 20, Simone is not just a Superhuman in the making, but already a true Superhuman.
Chris Froome – A British cyclist. While cycling may not be as popular as other sports such as football, its top achievers mustn’t be forgotten. Chris has won the prestigious Tour de France three times, in recent years, a feat that has only been achieved a few times in history.
Ellie Simmonds – A 22 year old British Paralympian swimmer. We mustn’t forget the disabled sports stars that reach the top. While Ellie may not be considered a Superhuman due to having achondroplasia, look deeper and you’ll see that she really is. At 22, Ellie has already won 5 Paralympian gold medals. In 2009 she became the youngest ever person to receive an MBE by the Queen!
