I was growing up in the 50’s and 60’s. Back then they didn’t even know what dyslexia was.
If I wasn’t dyslexic, I probably wouldn’t have won the Games. If I had been a better reader, then that would have come easily, sports would have come easily… and I never would have realized that the way you get ahead in life is hard work.
