People always say I'm a legend, but I'm not. Not until I've defended my Olympic titles. That's when I've decided I'll be a legend.
People like to see showdowns.
When people see your personality come out, they feel so good, like they actually know who you are.
I've learned over the years that if you start thinking about the race, it stresses you out a little bit. I just try to relax and think about video games, what I'm gonna do after the race, what I'm gonna do just to chill. Stuff like that to relax a little before the race.
All I have to do is to work on transition and technique.
I work hard, and I do good, and I'm going to enjoy myself. I'm not going to let you restrict me.
Manners is the key thing. Say, for instance, when you're growing up, you're walking down the street, you've got to tell everybody good morning. Everybody. You can't pass one person.
But anybody who steps into the lane beside you is the biggest competition because they made it to the finals.
