I posted this elsewhere but it fits even better here:

[i]Tell that to this guy. Al Oerter won 4 gold medals in the discus at the Olympic games in 1956, 1960, 1964, and 1968. And remains one of the most amazing accomplishments and one of the best stories in Olympic history.
Very Happy

I think there is a difference between an athlete like Al Oerter who competes individually and mskes the team competing head to head with other athletes and those who are go as part of a team. All the individaul events are picked because they finished in the top three, not because they have been there before and are veterants.

The fact that you used an individual event as a comparison shows you lack reason and are just looking for some justificaton.
