Far too often, we place labels on people... More troubling are the labels we place on ourselves. "mid-pack," "competitive," "average," "fat," "weak," are just a few. Why are labels problematic? Because the prevent us from experiencing the full-spectrum of possibilities and emotions.
Five years ago, it would have been easy to label this woman. If she'd accepted her designated category, she may have never pushed to learn her full potential. She may have been closed to broadening herself. She may have simply sat down and had another cigarette.
With that said, today we'll label her "World Champion." However, knowing Ann Ciavarella, I'm sure she'll reject this label like some many others people have tried to place upon her.
