“Good is something you do, not something you talk about. Some medals are pinned to your soul, not to your jacket.” – Gino Bartali

Bartali was not just an excellent pro cyclist, he saved Jews by transporting forged documents hidden in the frame of his bike while pretending to be on training rides of up to 380 km.
