Derrick Adkins Biography
Vince Lombardi once said Its not how many times you fall. Its how many times you get back up. Olympic gold medalist hurdler Derrick Adkins is no stranger to setbacks. During his collegiate career he endured severe injuries which it seemed he would not be able to recover from. He also became known for hitting hurdles and falling to the ground in major races, causing him to develop the reputation of a choker. To add to this, Adkins suffered from clinical depression, including alcoholism, both during and after his career as a world-class athlete.
Despite these obstacles Adkins was able to pull things together during the summer of 1996 to win an Olympic gold medal for the United States in the 400 meter hurdles at the Olympic Games in Atlanta.
Adkins states that it took a positive mindset to help him overcome his obstacles. He says, You cannot succeed in life with a negative demeanor. You must will yourself to be positive and optimistic about your future chances to succeed, no matter how many times you have fallen in the past. This is the only way to success.
