“Just because you get beat doesn’t mean you stop trying, it just means you go home and work on your own résumé. When I go home this off-season, I’ve got to go home and work twice as hard, three times as hard and put a picture of Bolt above my bed.”
--Wallace Spearmon, US sprinter who came in third in the 100M to Usain Bolt in Berlin in a time of 9.85 seconds.
