How many times have you taken part in an activity or competition in your life?
As a result of taking part, how many times have you won?
Do you think that the times that you didn’t win did you harm or were less influential in your personal, social or emotional development?
Is competition the only route to being a winner?

Kirsty's Appeal for £5 million will help many other very poorly children in the future, and be an everlasting Legacy to her bravery
Volunteer staff work around the clock to ensure these youngsters cram as much into their short years as possible whilst helping their parents come to terms with the inevitable

She received the biggest cheer of the Games
It is all about WINNING!
