an international hero
Who is he?
He is an olympic champion
the road to the gold medal
That's already a little special but all the things that happened to him on his way to the gold medal are even more special. He almost died by losing 4 litres of blood and he broke his neck by falling on his head while he was training. In Australia there even is a saying: ' To do a Bradbury', it means ' to do something impossible'. All those things make him a true hero.
Some say he didn't deserve that medal, but I'm not one of them. Steven himself said:' I'm taking that god medal, but I'm not taking it for the 90 seconds of that race. I'm going to take it for the 12 years I lived up to that 90 seconds.'
