'Olympian' is a lofty word, evoking as it does images of supermen and women who, for a brief moment in time, condescend to parade before us their supreme skills.
Every Olympics, thus, brings together the chosen few out of the many billion; the gods of the sporting arena.
But even among the elite, there are the Supreme Beings. Sportsmen and
women so incredibly gifted that they stand out from the throng, capture
the imagination, become for the duration of a particular Olympics
everyone's favourite pinup.
A drumroll of honour, that.
