    You have to want it more

    If you don't think the strength of your desire matters - you didn't watch the last 25 meters of Chad le Clos's 200m butterfly swim to win a gold medal at the olympics.

    Friggin' awesome!
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Damn straight. He really dipped into the primal zone.

    Sent shivers down my spine just watching him.

    It was fantastic - well done Chad - you make us proud. It really is quite emotional when you see a guy like him standing on the podium with tears in his eyes - so happy that he has done it and also done it for his country . And to his father as well - as proud as they get - in his words "unbelievable" !

    LOVE the commentators. Chad did not win it - Phelps' error lost it for him.

    BWAAH! Look at the record books to see who won, boys!

    Commentators are always the clever ones!!! At least Phelp's took it like a man. His gesture on the podium to a overwelmed Chad was proof of a gentleman.
