This sport, a passion of mine,
My teammates, all better than I,
Will I ever get recognition?
Hard work, part of my life as the air I breathe,
To become as the rest, more must I do than they,
Pain my body must endure,
Blood I must shed without reservation,
Sacrifices it shall require,
All who have laughed,
Those who dared to mock me,
Shall see me ascend above all,
A dream was where I began,
A reality it shall become,
If you believed, If you believed not,
Witness it you shall!
