Tons of inspiration

DAVID Warner’s Test match performance (“Tons of courage”, HS, 28/12) should be instructive to hose who seemingly succumb to adversity and give up the fight.

Warner’s transcendence of “many turbulent times” reflects not just his resilience, but maybe more importantly, his determination, discipline and dedication.

His inspirational performance in sweltering heat provides lessons about how when times are tough, the tough keep going.

With increased incidence of mental health issues, particularly among young people, perhaps understanding what sports stars can teach us about how to win the fight for a good, healthy and successful life seems significant.

Warner is just one of many to fight back from despair and disappointment to again reach the pinnacle of achievement. May he continue to prosper.
