win once, people might say that

    导出博客文章I am incredibly proud to know Sgt. Elizabeth Marks. This year she won four gold
    medals in swimming events at the Invictus Games in Orlando, Florida. She was
    then selected to compete for the U.S. team at the Rio Paralympic Games. Going
    into the Games she was ranked No. 1 in the world in the 100-meter breaststroke,
    and she went on to win gold in the SB7 100 meters.This is an incredible
    achievement by any standards, and I know this is how she wants to be defined, by
    her achievements and her abilities. But as an Army sergeant wounded in service
    to her country, her journey to get to this point has been remarkable. To me she
    epitomizes the courage, resilience and determination of our servicemen and
    women. Using sport to fight back from injury in the most remarkable way, she
    sums up what the Invictus Games spirit is all about.Elizabeth joined the Army in
    2008 as a combat medic. She suffered bilateral hip injuries during a tour in
    Iraq in 2010 and underwent four surgeries in 18 months. She used sport as a way
    of helping in her recovery, keeping mobile, fit, healthy and focused. She was
    selected to compete for the U.S. team in the first 2014 Invictus Games in
    London, but on arrival in England she had trouble breathing. Within hours, her
    lungs had filled with fluid and she had been put in a medically induced coma,
    with little hope of recovery. We all feared the worst, but the team at
    Cambridges Papworth Hospital helped reoxygenate her body using an external lung
    machine and brought her back.Elizabeth refused to be beaten, and two years later
    she was again selected to compete for the U.S. team at the 2016 Orlando Invictus
    Games. This is where I first met her, and heard from her how she had stayed
    motivated, not only fighting back to health, but fighting back to the level of
    an elite sportswoman. Because of her injuries, the effort that she expends in
    the pool leaves her disorientated to the point of blindness, yet I watched her
    go on to win four gold medals during that week. Elizabeth certainly doesnt want
    sympathy; she considers herself unbelievably lucky to have been given another
    chance in life and to be part of a military family that continues to inspire her
    to be as good as she can be.After winning her fourth medal, she asked me to
    return it to the team at Papworth Hospital, whom she credits with saving her
    life. This was a hugely inspirational and defining moment for the Games, and I
    was delighted to do this when I got back to London. To see her then win gold in
    Rio was incredible. Through her achievement, Elizabeth has inspired thousands of
    people and hugely deserves her place among the espnW IMPACT25.More on Elizabeth

    It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by
    the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then
    hung on in the fourth and fifth.Matt Fitzpatrick insisted he was trying to play
    down his chances of a Ryder Cup debut following his three-shot win at the Nordea
    Masters. Fitzpatrick displayed composure beyond his 21 years to safely protect
    his overnight five-shot lead as a solid final-round 71 proved enough to hold off
    Lasse Jensen and Nicolas Colsaerts at Bro Hof Slott.The young Englishman had
    endured a poor run of results since posting his only top-10 finish of the season
    at The Masters in April, when a superb final-round 67 lifted him into a tie for
    seventh - five shots behind Danny Willett. Fitzpatrick held his nerve to wrap up
    a three-shot win in Sweden Fitzpatrick missed the cut by one shot in his next
    three starts, but he roared back to form in Stockholm to pick up his second
    European Tour title following his impressive wire-to-wire victory in the British
    Masters supported by Sky Sports at Woburn in October.He remains fourth on the
    European points list in the Ryder Cup standings, but the win in Sweden extended
    his advantage over fifth-placed Andy Sullivan to almost 270,000 points. Ryder

    Im trying to play down a little bit, said Fitzpatrick, who became the youngest
    ever winner of the Nordea Masters as previous record holder Graeme McDowell had
    just turned 23 when he lifted the title in 2002.ddddddddddddIm really trying to
    play each week as it comes and theres still a long way to go before then, there
    are still three majors and anyone can win them. Hopefully Ill keep playing well
    and see where we end up come September. Fitzpatrick retains the final qualifying
    place in the European points list for the Ryder Cup Asked to rate his progress
    since his maiden Tour victory at Woburn, Fitzpatrick added: Im completely a
    million miles ahead of schedule.Its been a tough few weeks to be fair. After the
    Masters I had three missed cuts in a row and didnt play as well as Id like at
    Wentworth last week, and all of a sudden you turn up this week and pick up a
    win. The 21-year-old is the youngest winner of the Nordea Masters, surpassing
    Graeme McDowell Ill never forget my first win, but this is a special one for me
    as well. To win once, people might say that was lucky but to win twice and
    people might have a little bit more confidence in you. So its nice to back that
    up.Its great to see some of those names on the trophy, like Nick Faldo, Lee
    Westwood, Luke Donald. Its brilliant. I think I noticed Tony Jacklins name on
    there as well, and theres some great foreign players as well, so Im delighted.
    Fitzpatrick missed three straight cuts after his tie for seventh at The Masters
    I was just trying to stick to my game plan today, as I didnt want to chase.
    Thought that would be silly of me to try and do that. I think the first time I
    was ale to really relax was once I found the green on the 17th.Theres no bailout
    on that hole. When I actually hit it and I thought thats a great shot, and it
    should be really close. It came down and it looked close, and then it started
    spinning and my heart was in my mouth. And Im sure my dad at home was panicking
    about that one. American Golf Competition Win replica clubs and bag of the
