Thor: God of Thunder!

On the same theme as the most awesome send-off gift for the World Championships anyone could ever get — especially someone with a first name of Thor — the story below came from a good friend of mine Brian’s brother, who was, as a kid, a big fan of the comic book Thor:

The beautiful part, even poetic, is how Thor, the God of Thunder:

“If pressed in battle, Thor is capable of entering into a state known as the “Warrior’s Madness”, which will temporarily increase his strength tenfold. He also possesses virtually inexhaustible godly stamina, high resistance to physical injury (eg. rocket fire, falls from orbital heights), and superhuman reflexes.”

For those who know me, you know that the “Warrior Within” helps me in my racing, helps me hold onto pace, and helps me fight through the battle of not only the course but also the elements.

“If pressed in battle, Thor is capable of entering into a state known as the ‘Warrior’s Madness,’ which will temporarily increase his strength tenfold. He also possesses virtually inexhaustible godly stamina, high resistance to physical injury (eg. rocket fire, falls from orbital heights), and superhuman reflexes.

Thor is a superb hand-to-hand combatant and has mastered a number of weapons such as the war hammer, sword, and mace. He is also cunning and intuitive in battle, with many centuries of experience. Thor possesses two items that assist him in combat: the Belt of Strength, and his mystical hammer Mjolnir. The first item doubles his strength,while the second is used for control of his weather abilities; flight; energy projection and absorption; dimensional apertures; matter manipulation and the most powerful of his offensives, the God Blast, and the Anti-Force.”

So now we know, the hammer I will drop at Worlds is the mighty hammer Mjolnir.
