Marc Zupan and Overcoming by Doing

Though Zupan’s story is a thoroughly modern one, we can’t help but detect the grandeur of a hero’s arc, seeing the athlete struck by the “gods” but ready to bravely battle his demons to emerge triumphantly. The trick is, however, that this athlete’s success did not take the form he expected it to. That fateful night, it would seem that all the young man’s dreams were robbed from him—but he simply went on to create different dreams!
