Another one from Reader’s Digest.
The final round of the hammer throw event comes down to a soldier, a farmer, and Larry, who lives with his parents.
The soldier throws first: 85 meters. Interviewed later, he says, “I’m from a military family, which gives me discipline.”
Then the farmer throws: 88 meters. He tells reporters, “I’m from a farming family. This gives me strength.”
It’s Larry’s turn. He slings the hammer 95 meters, winning gold! Later, he explains, “I’m from a long line of lazy people and I was taught, ‘If anyone ever puts a hammer in your hand, throw it as far away as you can.’”
