Quote Of The Day
“One thing you have to do is park your ego. Once you were introduced at dinner parties as an Olympic athlete, next thing you’re a bloke in insurance. You have to manage your ambitions. But the good thing is, sport teaches you how to do that. … When they finish competing, I think these [sports] people are pretty much capable of doing whatever they want to do.”
