comments please! Pete's story below

"Oh did it Go?" Pete completed the finish line and was panting like a bull dog
"it's 10 O 21. not bad big boy. we got only 2 days for the practice" said Bob stop watch on his hand

Pete and his track coach Bob are getting ready for the coming Olympics to be held in Tokyo in a weeks time

Tokyo. It's the D day.

It's a perfect day for the race, a tail wind of 2.0 m/s, temperature touching 24 degrees

Pete is getting ready on his position. the previous day he has clocked 9:22 seconds. not sure if he could do
the trick today.

He positioned himself. his eyes on the staring gun. he heard the gun shot... and he is a bullet..
wait a minute, what the's a false start from someone... he could see the starter signaling for a restart
Pete wants to grab the starters gun and shoot him on the head and shoot himself

Pete moved back to his position. He remembers, this is the last time he has got a shot at Olympics.. next year he is retiring...
he could hear his heart beating like a drum.Bip..Bip..Bip..Bip.. He feels his ears getting hot.
His legs are a bit stiff & tense.There the gun shot again, Pete stared a bit slow .. his legs takes control...
he could see he is 3rd or 4th.

he feels the blood moving into his legs and he pushes his chest forward each step.. there are 2 more guys
before him.... Pete feels like it's a dream and he is floating... one more guy... he pushes his last bit of
energy into his lungs ...he couldn't see anything now ... the finish line..... he sees his legs crossing the
finish line and he collapses...

New York times headlines : Aug 2067. Pete, affectionately called as "Zhiko zilo MKTP karisko" won the
100 meter track race for robots, held at Tokyo. Pete complained off chest pains and collapsed immediately after
the race. it is rushed to Tokyo general hospital and after 2 hour struggle, Dr Yazzo Khivvo pronounced it terminated
at 8:30 PM,local time. the cause is referred as Hyper Cardio Syndro Syshophorio, commanly called as Heart attack.
this is the first of its kind occurrence in robotics, wherein a robot gets terminated due a human-related disease.

Is this for real?
If so, then robots should aim 'slower,lower,lesser'
