Quote Of The Day
“The Olympics hit me hard, because after 2012 I was a young guy, I thought, ‘I’ll be older, I should be better, I should be wiser, next Olympics I should be able to do better.’ Then to go to Rio and get knocked out in the heats, that came too hard on me. You ask yourself, ‘Will I ever do it again?’ It was tough, but I had to keep going, keep believing in myself, keep believing I have it in me. … I’ve been doing things better than I’ve ever done in my career and that gives me more hope and more faith that I’m headed in the right direction. I feel more strong. I haven’t been a guy who could do longer stuff, but now I can do long stuff and feel good and enjoy it. It’s a good change in the right direction … It took me two years to realize what I did. In 2014 I was looking back, and say, ‘Wow, I did that.’ Now I look back and say, ‘I did that without the backup of anything, without knowing how did I get to 1:41.’ So maybe I couldn’t stay up to that level of 1:41 because I didn’t know how I got there or how I could keep myself there.”
