Quote Of The Day
“I never lost hope that I’d one day get these medals. I definitely tried not to hang onto it because it would make it impossible for me to move forward. When you’re cheated out of a medal and you know it, it eats at you internally and you’re going after it again. It’s hard. The Olympics are huge and you think that’s your shot and then you miss. You blame yourself and think, ‘What can I do differently.’ … I can’t get out hard and then press the pace with 300 meters to go. I thought, ‘Oh my god. Don’t walk. This is going to be the first time I walk. My body is stopping. My body is falling.’ You realize how human you are and that these others don’t feel those effects because they’re cheating.”
