One day he could become an Olympic Champion which supports the Olympic Value pursuit of excellence and fair play. Its important for teens like myself to learn these valuable lessons because starting a career, dream or passion now could have a huge impact on what its going to be like in the future. Lots of us teens are going through rejections and low self-esteem so by following my dreams is what Im going to be heading for. Secondly, Turteltaub had showed me about determination. He also used techniques such as close-up of Derices face and Irving Blitzer (legendary Bobsled double gold medallist) as Derice was trying to pursue Irv to be the first time Jamaican Bobsled coach. But Irv has been consistently rejecting his offer. Turteltaub has shown how Derice had felt afterwards, after facing his loss in the qualifying round for track racing.
He was determined to find a way to get back into the Olympics. This emphasises that giving up your dream is an easy thing to do, because that is like a short cut for being negative, but by committing and being determined harder, at least youre going somewhere, which follows the Olympic value pursuit of excellence. Its important to learn these valuable lessons because as a teen myself, Ive been doubted in many different ways throughout my life, but because Ive been determined to make a change and prove them wrong, that was exactly what Ive done because I have been true to myself and standing against negativity. Thirdly, Turteltaub taught me about leadership. He showed this when Derice (close-up shot) had to lead by example when his whole boblsled team crashed.
