Peru has never competed in the winter Olympics before.So when Roberto Carcelen — their first ever winter Olympian, now competing in Sochi — broke a rib in training, he wasn’t about to let that little detail stop him from competing in the arduous 15km cross-country ski race.Carcelen was badly out-gunned in the intense competition. Knowing he was dead last, he finished the race with his country’s flag over his head, crossing the finish line with pride. But that’s when he saw the gold medallist, Cologna from Switzerland and Nepal’s Dachhiri Sherpa, waiting for him.To show his appreciation for the competitor, a first-time winter Olympian from his country, for the drive to compete despite injury, Cologna and Sherpa hung around the finish line for an extra 30 minutes after winning gold just to shake Carcelen’s hand.

daily reminder that the boy you’re in love with at 16 probably won’t matter when you’re 25.

daily reminder that the math test you failed your freshman year of high school probably won’t matter when you’re graduating college.

daily reminder that the problems you’re facing today may seem like the worlds end, but they will not matter in a year.

daily reminder that you’re going to be okay.

everything is going to be okay.
