In sports, athletes are conditioned to learn to compete. The inherent nature of competition means one must win, and others must lose. Athletes are taught, from a young age, that one must work harder than the rest in order to beat them, to be better than them on the field of competition.
But, sometimes there is a bond, even with opposing athletes, that is built on mutual respect. That bond can develop into powerful friendships that transcend the competitive nature deep in an athlete’s psyche.
