Mini-Quiz: Winning an Athletic Contest

by Ron Kurtus (23 May 1999)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why do people want to win a competition?

Most people don't care

The winner always gets the girl

It shows who is better in that activity

2. Can a good strategy overcome lack of skill?


Skill always leads to a victory

If the person is taller

3. How important is determination in winning?

It depends on the score

It is not as important as knowing the rules

It can be enough to make the difference

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Excellence. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

The thrill of victory... the agony of defeat
