it is more befitting for non sports person. for an athletes or swimmers has to ignore pain more so as he or she nears to the point of breasting the ribbon. a boxer has to ignore in order to win or lose.! a mother has to bear the pain regardless of her liking while in labour. but no gains without pain. mind is trained to withstand pain in case of terrorist, spies, espionage agents. ask Scotland yard. for James Bond always pain is accompanied by great romance!!!!! et al.it is Regards. God Bless.
