A national hero? A world hero me thinks

Azizulhasni Awang had a bit of a crash at the Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester yesterday. He ended up with this "little" splinter in his leg and can you believe it, he got back on the bike and finished the race? He received the Bronze Medal for the race but more importantly the overall crown as Keiran World Champion for the series.

He was front page news yesterday in Malaysia and deservedly so but what an athlete, what a man. Someone for us all to look up to, respect and emulate (His courage I mean, no need to go to these lengths haha).
