"Boxing is a way to hopefully get the kids interested in something else. Once I make that connection with them and they get interested and they like it, hopefully it's a segue into, 'Well, how you doing at school?'" -Carol "The Cheyenne Storm" Limpy
"We are strong and we can do all things, and we’re great. When you look at these women who, in such a male-dominated world, a male-dominated sport — they’re [WNBA Players] doing amazing things. Their strength is amazing." -Mary J. Blige
"As far as goals go, this honor has always been on a list I wrote down in the back of some journal years ago. Dreams don't sprout overnight, and triumph doesn't grow from trees. My 2016 season is a reflection of years of being a student of the game, hours of grueling practice, memories favorable and unfavorable, of great teammates and heartbreaking losses on the court." -Nneka Ogwumike
Congrats to the MVP!
"Looking back, one can say that had my grandmother not been a crusader in Arnie's Army [Arnold Palmer], had she not grabbed my father by the hand to make him watch golf, I could very well have never been." -Anya Alvarez
"One thing the women's [soccer] game needs, always, is focus. It has suffered from being the 10th priority for a long time. If it is the first priority on enough people's lists then things can happen. The climate has changed for women's football in the last few years. It is now a gold star issue among member associations. If you are doing well then it is a positive act and it is no longer acceptable to do nothing." -Moya Dodd
“I think the players [from the U.S.] that go to Cuba will see a lot of reality. They will see a lot of things that we take for granted here that people over there don’t. Pretty much over there, people don’t have anything, but they’re probably not going to go inside the cities and see the real life and real struggles of the people over there. For all of us, it’s a dream to come to America and play baseball. Some of us will do whatever it takes to achieve that. Hopefully, this will open a lot of doors and can change a lot of things.” -José Fernandez
Rest in peace to José Fernandez. It was shocking to hear of his passing this morning and it shows that life is short. We cannot take things for granted and even though he lived life to the fullest, we still feel robbed that he was taken so early. I hope that Marlins fans will recover from this because it is such a hard hit. I am so sorry and you did not deserve this. I wish the best next couple of games to the Marlins because you deserve only the best. -J
"I've never been a competitive person by nature, and getting into competitions was really an accident. I was very fortunate to have success in competitions, but the traveling and stress caught up to me and I knew I needed to change my ways when I started to lose my passion for the sport... I'm finding myself right back where I was -- with full love for this incredible sport and endless excitement for the future!" -Hope Le Vin
"I was enough, and I think that is an important message for anyone to know. You're capable. You are enough." -Kylie Bunbury
“To see a community that had never heard of this sport really buy into it and support their daughters, and seeing even the girls that I started with in the shallow end, not comfortable in the water, and now they’re in the deep end playing water polo, it’s so rewarding. The bonus I think is when I get parents that come up to me and tell me, ‘They’re doing so much better in school. I noticed their confidence is different in themselves.’ It’s great.” -Brenda Villa
"This tribute is not only for me, but for all of our athletes who were in Rio. If I won a medal, what I want is this: to share it with the [Colombian] people." -Mariana Pajón
Hi, I'm Jenna and I'm a sports fan! I've been avidly watching sports since 2011 because I found that by watching sports, I would be able to communicate with my dad and brother better. Ever since I got into sports, I've been able to enjoy myself more when I go to sporting events with my family.
