quote of the month
" Mentally and physically this sport has drained me. But giving up has never been part of my DNA. Two months ago I made a choice and didn’t look back. For moments like this. 4th place at Olympic Trials. I’m back. And not going anywhere.
When you find that true passion and hunger for something, you’re in a special place.
This is the rebirth."
