Quote Of The Day
“I think Carl was having a bad day when he did this interview! Ultimately, people are going to look back in 30 years and note that I won an Olympic title – hopefully two Olympics titles. I can pretty much guarantee that top of their minds will not be the question, ‘Whose performances did Carl Lewis admire?’ as a barometer of success. … I don’t need validation from Carl Lewis and I don’t compete to please ex-athletes. My aims in life are simple; to be the best possible athlete I can be, cleanly, and to be a great father. Luckily for me, fishing for compliments from a retired athlete is not on my bucket list. … There is however one lesson I’ve learnt from Carl, and that’s to never attempt to sing our national anthem to a packed stadium!”
