"I am training at such a high level that I actually could eat anything and get by. But as my coach always says, your body is like a car, and food is like your fuel. I am a race car, so I can't just put unleaded fuel in my car. I need that good premium fuel." -Lolo Jones
" I don't really have time or interest in doing a lot of the crazy things that some of my teenage peers do, mostly because I have such a hectic life that I don't need to add to that chaos by creating my own teenage drama like a lot of teenagers do." -Mikaela Shiffrin
"People used to say girls shouldn’t play hockey. Well, that’s starting to disappear. It’s the same thing with cultures or ethnicities and who should be doing what sport. Well, let people pursue what they’re passionate about — that’s how it should be." -Julie Chu
"I do my job on the mound and then what I can at the plate, always working on helping the team anyway that I can." -Jennie Finch
"It really is all about believing in yourself: 80 per cent mental, 20 per cent physical." -Victoria Pendleton
"Use your passion and excitement about being an athlete motivate you through the hard times. It's what you do with the rough patches that will define the athlete you'll become." -Natalie Vollmer
"My first injury ever was a broken toe, and my mother made me run laps around the mat for the rest of the night. She said she wanted me to know that even if I was hurt, I was still fine." -Ronda Rousey
"Somewhere behind the athlete you've become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back... play for her." -Mia Hamm

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.
