After winning the 1996 Atlanta Olympics' tennis gold medal, now almost retired tennis legend Andre Agassi said:
“To win a Grand Slam in the sport of tennis is the biggest thing you can accomplish inside your sport, but the Olympics is the biggest thing you can do in all sports. It's a small part of an amazing moment, a small part of an event that is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. To win a gold medal is what it’s all about."
This amateur way of feeling sport is what makes great professionals.
Thank you Andre, for your tribute to sport in the last 18 years.
