  • I think even if I was to go out there and win the Olympics, everyone’s still going to remember the pre-race routine that I do and the video that went viral so, y’know, that’s alright for me, anything that brings attention to athletics is a good thing, we’re a fairly low-profile sport and I’m just doing what I can to try and give us a bit more of a profile.
