Sometimes we watch champions as our heroes. After all, they win no matter what. They are our role models and we want to be them because they inspire us to believe in ourselves and beat the odds. Then after a long time they are dethroned by a better opponent. That is what our moment of disbelief appears and we don’t believe what just happened. The question is: what are the reasons of a champion fall? In this article I will talk about three reasons why the champions lose their momentum.
- 1) They are just human beings. It is true that they are great athletes with a lot of talent and heart but after all they are just human beings. They are not gods. Even if they were gods they will fall occasionally like gods of mythology. The problem of being just human beings is that they have personal lives and feelings. Let’s imagine that our favorite athlete suffered a break-up the night before the big game. They are prepared to control their minds, but they are just humans and they are not immune to succumb to sadness or frustration feelings. That could be the causes of their poor performance and that poor performance can affect their championship level.
- 2) They have an occasionally slope streak. It is possible for the best players and champions to have a slope streak. It is something inexplicable but it can be multiple factors that affect their mind unconsciously and then their skills.
- 3) The opponents were better. This could be one of the main reasons why our champions fall. After all there will always be more talented and more confident champions. It is like the Roman Empire. The Empire was untouchable and invincible until a better world power destroys it. Sometimes the most powerful forces will be destroying by even more powerful ones and that is a fact that can’t be changed.
In conclusion, it is normal that our heroes fall because there will be always factors that will affect their performances. It could be internal factors, external factors or both. The important thing to remember is that our heroes will not always be invincible but at least we can celebrate the time they were champions, because a true champion will be forever a champion no matter who dethrones him.
