Ignore the critics and Just do it

Another one of those “Just do it” Nike commercials but with a very nice inspirational message. It features Lance Armstrong, road racing cyclist and chairman of the Lance Armstrong Foundation for cancer research and support. Armstrong broke a record of winning the Tour de France race for seven consecutive years (1999-2005). This was after his battle with cancer. In 1996, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer that spread to his lungs, abdomen and brain.

His critics claimed that the drugs he was taking for treatment made him out perform his peers. He faced many such accusations that aimed to discredit his wins. A man who not only battled cancer and survived its complications but was also determined to practice to race, competed and won. Even if it was only one race win, he would still be an inspiration.
