Quote Of The Day
“When the final came, I wasn’t stressed, actually. I was very happy. I was smiling on my warm-up, thinking about my dogs, thinking about [my husband]. I don’t remember any of the race at all except for the last 100 meters when everyone was around me. I didn’t want to panic because I was on the rail. Lane 1 opened up and I took it. I didn’t know what place I got so I almost walked off the track – I didn’t want to look like an idiot celebrating something I maybe didn’t get.”
– Brenda Martinez talking about her race in the 2013 Moscow World Championships 800m, where she became the first American woman to medal in the event, getting 3rd by .04 seconds.
