On Sunday, May 3, Wings for Life World Run Live Experience will stream online and into homes on TVs worldwide.
Will the world see you burst away from the Catcher Car as it closes in, or will the world share in your dance for joy that you stepped up to the challenge and won your own victory?
The moment that Catcher Car passes you in the Wings for Life World Run is one you’ll remember for many years. How will everyone watching the Live Experience remember it?
Prepare for the sweetness of success with some of these incredible celebrations.
The Lightning Bolt. The Jamaican reigns victorious, ruling both the 100m and 200m Olympic sprints in 2008 and 2012 and holding the world record times for both distances. With his plans to retire after the 2017 World Championships in London, could there be an opening for a new victory celebration?
Who can forget the emotion, the electricity, the excitement of Usain Bolt in the 2012 Olympics?
Winning Hearts. Awww! Now, one person winning is exciting, but TWO people winning, individually, each as proud of the other as they are of themselves would melt the hardest of hearts.
Turkey’s male and female winners, ultrarunner Svetlana Shepeleva, and her husband, Murat Kaya, who had his eye on winning from the start line, share a moment of victorious pride in each other.
V for Victory. He fought long and hard to steady a world on the brink of chaos. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s unwavering belief, incredible selection of the right words at the right time, and his V sign that steeled the hearts and minds of millions of souls have stood the test of time.
A victory worth celebrating.
Heart winning. Hiroko Ogava is not alone in her celebration, but it comes from the heart. It IS a heart.
And it’ll be great to see that heart out again in Melbourne on May 3, 2015.
The Jagr Salute. Goal after goal after goal brings out the famous Jagr salute of Jaromir Jagr of the Florida Panthers, who play in Sunrise Florida’s huge ice-hockey stadium. In his career, he’s won it all: the Stanley Cup, the World Championship, the Olympic Games, earning him a place in the Triple Gold Club with just 24 other legendary players.
At 43, Jagr's considered the best ice-hockey player of all time. Reason to celebrate with a mighty salute.
In two heart-stopping Olympic finals and world record after world record, Mo Farah and his Mobot entertain millions after every race.
Farah and Bolt switched victory salutes in the 2012 Olympics to the delight of a roaring crowd. But the Mobot has humble beginnings: On a TV show hosted by comedian and writer James Corden, Farah was told he needed a move to celebrate Olympic victory, so BBC TV presenter Clare Balding suggested "I think you should do the 'M' from YMCA, the M for Mo." The rest, ladies and gentlemen, is history.
It’s universal! Throwing your hands up in delight, thumbs sticking out in triumph, in victory. But what better way to do it than caked in mud after the Maldon Mud Race? You’re welcome.
Over to you. How will you celebrate? What will make your victory moment truly victorious?
