Michael Phelps on Fair Play

The recent US election reminds me of something famous American Olympian Michael Phelps, winner of 28 Olympic medals, 23 gold medals and considered one of the greatest athletes of all time, once said:

“If we allow our confidence in fair play to erode, we will undermine the power of sport, and the goals and dreams of future generations,”…”The time to act is now. We must do what is necessary to ensure the system is fair and reliable, so we can all believe in it.”

If you cheat, you are no winner. How can you look at yourself in the mirror when you and God know you didn’t deserve to win?
