An Olympics Performance Perfect For A Lesson On “Grit”

fall

You may have seen the amazing performance by U.S. skater Jeremy Abbott on Friday when he took a terrible fall but then recovered to finish very strongly.

The video of happened (I can only link to it since it’s not embeddable) will be a perfect addition to The Best Video Clips Demonstrating “Grit” though, since its seven minutes long, you probably want to only show the fall and its aftermath to students.

In addition, I’d supplement showing it with having students read some of the following articles:

Jeremy Abbott suffers brutal fall, but skates on is from The Washington Post.

After fall, Jeremy Abbott shows grit and finishes short program is from NBC.

Jeremy Abbott, U.S. figure skating champ, falls hard but finishes routine to huge ovation is from CBS.
