Quote Of The Day
“It was also very difficult to train at school. The school grounds were only the size of about three tennis courts and some days when other sports used this area I did not have a place to train. I was sometimes forced to carry out my strides and exercises on the street. This was understandably a difficult period for me, but I just kept telling myself it does not matter where I carry out my training or how I am being challenged, success comes down to the hard work and motivation to be faster. I did no see the training as strange or odd. That was just how it was! As difficult and challenging as this was I look back on this period not thinking of this as a handicap. I simply trained so hard, it gave me confidence.”
