Why Manny Pacquiao is a great athlete

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is a great athlete not because of his boxing wins, but because of what he has done, and is still doing, to win.

When he’s there in the ring and celebrating his triumph over his opponent, it’s so easy for people to forget that it’s merely the destination after a long, tortuous and really painful journey.

I’ve watched on television a lot of news reports on Pacquiao’s trainings and boy, oh, boy! I could feel how physically taxing those trainings were! His grimacing face said it all.

Personally, I’ve tried to do some of the exercises that the pound-for-pound king has done. I have nothing but more respect for him after that. 

But despite his accomplishments in the field of boxing, Pacquiao continues to practice to hone his craft. He’s a true champion who will never rest on his laurels.
