I find it motivating in a roundabout way...
Sometimes we can get so caught up with how our bodies look, or what isn't "right" about ourselves that we forget what it is our bodies can do. Watching these athletes perform, well it brings that to mind. It motivates me to work harder to appreciate my body even if I can't do a backflip. My body is a beautiful machine, and it does wonderful things for me everyday.
