Paula Radcliffe, chasing(角逐)a third London marathon title(冠军),says she has become a stronger person after her terrible experience at the 2004 Athens Games.

Radcliffe, who failed to complete the Olympic marathon and the 10,000m last August, said:“Athens made me a stronger person and it made me care less about criticism(批评).”

“In the past I wanted to please everyone, but now I am going to listen even more to the people around me.”

She didn’t care about criticism made at the weekend by Liz Mc Colgan, who felt Radcliffe should have rested and let her body recover after her failure in Athens.

“Liz is someone I look up to but she hasn’t spoken to me since last year and if she really cared for me, I’m sure she would have contacted(联系)me.”

Instead Radcliffe won the New York City marathon just 11 weeks after Athens.

“In New York I wasn’t in my best state but I did know I was good enough to win the race.”

Radcliffe insisted her only goal in Sunday’s race would be winning a third title and not chasing world records.

However, Radcliffe has not ruled out(排除)in the future chasing her“final” world record time and questioned sayings that marathon runners have the ability in their career to produce only four or five world-class times.

“I don’t think that—although I can’t put a number on it,” said Radcliffe.“That changes from person to person.”

Radcliffe is sure she can better her winning London 2003 performance at some point in the future. Following a successful three-month training period in the United States, the 31-year-old will chase a third title on Sunday after her first victory in 2002 and again 12 months later.

Radeliffe clocked a time of 2:18:56 in her first 42.2-kilometre race three years ago.

Afterwards she set a“mixed course”mark of 2:17:18 five months later in Chicago before lowering that to a time of 2:15:25 in the 2003 London event.

Chances

I really love my job because I enjoy working with small children and like the challenges and awards from the job. I also think my work is important. There was a time when I thought I would never have that sort of career(职业).

I wasn’t an excellent student because I didn’t do much schoolwork. In my final term I started thinking what I might do and found I didn’t have much to offer. I just accepted that I wasn’t the type to have a career.

I then found myself a job. Looking after two little girls, It wasn’t too bad at first. But the problems began when I agreed to live in, so that I would be there if my boss had to go out for business in the evening. We agreed that if I had to work extra hours one week, she’d give me time off the next. But unfortunately, it didn’t often work out. I was getting extremely tired and fed up, because I had too many late nights and early mornings with the children.

One Sunday, I was in the park with the children, and met Megan who used to go to school with me, I told her about my situation. She suggested that I should do a course and get a qualification(资格证书)if I wanted to work with children. I didn’t think I would be accepted because I didn’t take many exams in school. She persuaded me to phone the local college and they were really helpful. My experience counted for a lot and I got on a part – time course. I had to leave my job with the family, and got work helping out at a kindergarten.

Now I’ve got a full – time job there. I shall always be thankful to Megan. I wish I had known earlier that you could have a career, even if you aren’t top of the class at school.

Paul Zindel’s death on March 27,2003 ended the brilliant life of a famous writer.

Not only did Paul Zindel win a Pulitzer Prize as well as an Obie Prize for his 1970 play The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds, but be was one of the earliest writers in the field of contemporary(当代的) literature for young adults(成人).

Six of Zindel’s books, in fact, have been voted the Best Books for Young Adults, and most of his recent horror books-such as The Doom Stone and Rats-have been chosen as Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers. Clearly, he was a writer who knew how to interest contemporary children. Recognizing that, the American Library Association in 2002 honored Paul Zindel with the Margaret A.
