I've been dreaming about this since I was a little kid, since I was 8 years old. I'm just glad these dreams are starting to come true.
I am just happy to still be in the medals to be going home with another silver medal.
I'm very, very disappointed with my performance here.
[Clay handled the weather - chilly in the 50s, windy and rainy - as well as the competition.] This was a very, very hard meet, ... Mentally, it was very hard to stay in it and concentrate, block the winds, know that it's rainy and cold yet you have to go out and run a personal best.
[Sebrle, 30, visited Clay, 25, in California this spring for training and golf.] Roman's a good golfer, ... I've been training so hard to get to this level I haven't had time to get on the course. Maybe now I can golf more and be more of a challenge to him.
I helped deliver the baby and everything. That was probably the most exciting moment of my life, ... This is a somewhat close second.
It was just a great competition that I had with Roman. It's always great to beat the king
On any given day one of us could have won. I'm just glad it went my way. Roman was there every step of the way.
I love Broadway. And, I listen to country music, which I think a lot of people find surprising.
I was blessed with certain gifts and talents and God gave them to me to be the best person I can be and to have a positive impact on other people.
I've been telling people I'm in the best shape of my life, I've been training unbelievably hard.
It's kind of fun to hear that other people deal with the same kinds of issues that you do.
I think to actually be an Olympian to me means that you've trained most of your life, or you've dedicated most of your life or a big chunk of your life into doing something that you believe that you can accomplish.
If I look what sport has done in my life, I don't think there's any doubt that sport can change lives.
My life was very Japanese.
