There are two kinds of competitors. The first kind competes to win. The second kind competes to have fun.
Those who compete to win have their eyes on the prize and will do everything in their power to end with a podium finish. Most of them would not even settle with the lowest or second to the highest podium. They’d only consider the top podium as the real deal.
Meanwhile, those who compete to have fun are in it to make the most out of the experience. They know that winning does not have to mean outperforming everyone else. It could simply mean outperforming yourself and having a blast doing so.
Our featured video is about the second kind of competitor, as we’ve described above. This dog was lucky enough to have been included in the prestigious Crufts competition. Come the day of the event, he chose to make a wild and wacky run at the obstacle course.
The dog in our video is Jack Russel terrier named Olly. Little Olly joined the Crufts’ Rescue Dog Agility competition. From the time Olly walks into the agility field, we know we’re up for some good entertainment.
And Olly does not disappoint. He runs the agility course with all the enthusiasm he can muster. He may not have the finesse of the winning dogs in the competition, but he definitely has the heart.
And, sometimes, that is all that matters. That is something Olly proves to us all.
Olly does not take the prize at the end. But we know the dog has had so much fun running the agility course. The same cannot be said about the other canine participants that had a flawless, well-practiced run.
Moreover, Olly won so many hearts in the process. He’s too fun to watch, after all.
