Quote Of The Day
“It was heart-breaking for me to miss out on qualifying for the London Olympics. Competing at my home Olympics is all I had ever dreamed about since the age of 15 when London secured the bid. … I quit the sport. For five months, I had no interest in the sport. I considered a new career in the army or the marines. Then around Christmas of 2012 I went for a walk by myself down by the river. It was on this walk I reflected on how I hard I’d trained for the previous 12 years. … I didn’t want to be the sort of person who had regrets, so I thought I should give the sport another go and I re-started training.”
