Be inspired

Here are some quotes to inspire the Olympian within you:

“An Olympic medal is the greatest achievement and honour that can be received by an athlete. I would swap any World Title to have won gold at the Olympics.”Jeff Fenech, Australian boxer, 1984 Summer Olympic Games

“The Olympics remain the most compelling search for excellence that exists in sport, and maybe in life itself.”Dawn Fraser, Australian swimmer, 3-time Olympic medallist

 “Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.”

Wilma Glodean Rudolph, First American woman to win three gold medals in track and field during a single Olympic Games, despite running on a sprained ankle.
