Right now, athletes from all over the world are in South Korea competing for gold, silver, and bronze medals in the 2018 Winter Olympics. They are at the peak of their abilities, and have been training hard for months and years to aspire to this pinnacle in their particular sport. As with all activities, these athletes did not wake up one morning and decide it would be nice to compete for the gold medal in downhill, or hockey, or luge. Instead, they set goals for themselves and worked and trained to achieve those goals. Then they set a higher goal and continued working to reach that goal, until they refined their own talents to their highest point, and won a spot on an Olympic team.
