Le maître-mot de Rudisha : l’HUMILITÉ. Dérivé de humus, qui signifie terre en latin, l’humilité dénote – loin de toute arrogance – une juste présence au monde : à ses semblables, à la nature, à la terre.
What does it take to be Great?
“I cannot say that I’m great, but I’ve always dreamed of greatness. To become a great man, you’ve to be humble, have the right attitude and to work hard. When I was growing up, I wanted to become like my father. I knew he was an athlete. I realize that dreaming was not enough. It takes a lot. You’ve to make a lot of sacrifices, with discipline. If you’re strong mentally and physically, you never quit. If you quit, you lose. It feels good if you have all the country behind you. I know there is a lot of young people looking at us. And they want to become like us one day. That – yeah – is a great motivation. If there is something I can say to the young people. My mother taught me: with a good breakfast and the right attitude, anything is possible. Because if you have a good breakfast, you are ready for the days-activities, you know to achieve what you want in life. I don’t think you can be the best. Always try to achieve the next level. I’m David Rudisha, two times World Champion, Olympic Champion and the world record holder of 800 m.“
