Quote Of The Day
“After the summer of 2016, I don’t plan to retire, but my track career will be over completely. I have to be honest to myself; I’ll be nearly 42 by then so I’ll be very happy to run. … I would like to go to this [Olympics] a lot more. This would be my fifth one and it’s also going to be my last one. I would have retired at the end of the 2015 season, but something inside was telling me, ‘Why retire one year before the Olympics? You can still do this.’ I’ll be going to the US Trials to do my very, very best to make the team. But it’s not a given like before. The US runners have stepped up and they’re highly ranked. They’re fast, young guys, so it’s not easy for me. But if I make that top three, oh my, I’ll be celebrating.”
