reasoning and like the heroes you mentioned. Normally I do not regard athletes as heroes.
I think Lance Armstrong COULD have been a hero if he had stayed honest, stood for freedom and truth, exhibited extraordinary human qualities that inspired others, and stayed true to those qualities as Ron Paul has done.
Winning a race or kicking a ball is NOT inspiring. It is extraordinary human qualities that inspire, and that can be in any walk of life, even a bike rider.
What you said here is true: "hero should be reserved for people who act very courageously for some human good or another, like freedom or truth"
