Quote Of The Day
“I am a 100, 200 and 400 athlete so will dream for every record there is. What sort of an athlete would I be if I didn’t? Speed is why I do track and field. I love going fast. That’s where my alter ego takes over. I live for speed. That’s the draw for me. … For a long time I could admire the athlete [Usain Bolt] and entertainer, but get to know him and you realize he is a good, true person … A lot of people say, ‘Wayde, you need to be more of an entertainer.’ I am not that type but I see qualities I share with Usain Bolt, and that brings a form of comfort even if it won’t sell T-shirts.”
