Hello, and welcome back to dealtar.com. I’m sorry for this late post. We started a very exciting series two weeks back, uncovering the stories and life lessons from people we refer to as survivors – people who came, saw and conquered despite the odds against them. Today, we will continue in this series by taking on a set of extraordinary people – “people who hoped against hope”. They are athletes who went on to be world champions despite conclusions that had been made concerning them. You will be intrigued.
