Eyes on the prize

American athlete and Sac and Fox Nation member Jim Thorpe competed in the 1912 Summer Olympics. On the morning of his events, he discovered his shoes were stolen. Luckily he found two mismatched track shoes in a garbage bin. One shoe was too big, however, so he threw on an extra sock. He went on to win two gold medals that glorious day, in decathlon and pentathlon. Take a lesson from Jim, and don’t let setbacks keep you back. Keep on keeping on!
