Quote Of The Day
“I knew there was something wrong, but I thought it would pass and I would just keep training through it. … I was disappointed in how I went in Moscow and thought something was wrong there. I just thought being an athlete who trains 100 to 120 miles a week that I am doing it wrong – I am not training hard enough or I am training too much. When you are in the life of a professional athlete, everything is about the goal and making teams and breaking records. You put a lot of little things to the side as nonsense. You think don’t worry about that just keep training and working hard.”
“… It was all happening at the one time, in synch. Looking back now after being diagnosed I realised my eyes had slowly been getting progressively worse for several years … But the way I look at it now is I was a car with a leak in my radiator and I have been leaking for a long time now and it just culminated with everything shutting down at once to the point where I knew I was in a bit of trouble.”
