"And she's around the corner for her final lap, closing in on the checkered flag for her biggest win of the year. The youngest female competitor to ever..." The announcer paused as his listeners waited for an update, "Oh no, something on the track, she's sliding towards the fence!"
In the joy of a new spring day, she somberly reflected upon what should have been a victorious moment, now an unobtainable goal thanks to the little squirrel that had been in her path.
Smiling, she moved forward knowing today she would have a chance to triumph once again but in the wheelchair games.
