Quote Of The Day
“I don’t think I have to tell you, but in our sport, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done to the average person. When you say your career is running, then people will ask you if you’re an Olympian. If you say, ‘no’, then they kind of look at you and say, ‘Then why are you wasting your time?’ Not that I really care that much about what people think, but obviously it means a lot to me to be an Olympian. As I’ve said, I do feel like I’ve screwed up the last two Olympic cycles. In 2008, I approached it a little too unprofessionally. In 2012, I’d say I was almost over-professional where I overdid it and got myself hurt. Now I’m making sure I’m doing everything right …”
