Quote Of The Day
“I hung up the [World silver] medal in my attic for a few weeks a few winters ago when I was injured. I’ve got an exercise bike in my attic. It was the middle of the winter and I was like ‘Yes, this will help.’ I put the medal up, looked at it, took inspiration, thought where I wanted to be again, and got back from injury.”
“It’s not hung up now. I put it back in its bag and it’s just on a shelf again in the attic. It’s kind of weird what athletes do with their medals. I’’s like what people say, ‘Don’t look at a photo, just try and remember it.’ It’s so much more than just the medal. It’s the whole process of doing it. Maybe when I retire it will be on show more.”
