Thomas Bach: Zero tolerance 


“Zero tolerance means all nations and all sports have to be compliant with WADA’s rules. On this front, sport requires the support of governments, governments need to make sure that their national anti-authorities are WADA-compliant.”

—Thomas Bach. 

Hulk Hogan: Being Hulk Hogan


The only time I’m not Hulk Hogan is when I’m behind closed doors because as soon as I walk out the front door, and somebody says hello to me, I can’t just say ‘hello’ like Terry. When they see me, they see the blond hair, the mustache, and the bald head, they instantly think Hulk Hogan.”

— Hulk Hogan.

Lindsey Vonn: Competition


Competition is what I find joy in as well. I like pushing myself. I like setting those goals. I like knowing that I’ve executed the plan I have set forth. All those things feel good. I don’t mind the mistakes. Failures are new challenges—they make me more excited to go back out there because I did something wrong and I know I can fix it.

—Lindsey Vonn.

Nick Foles: Failure


“I

think the big thing is don’t be afraid to fail. In our society today — you know, Instagram, Twitter, it’s a highlight reel. It’s all the good things. And then when you look at it, you think, like, wow, when you have a rough day or your life’s not as good as that, you’re failing.
Failure is a part of life. That’s a part of building character and growing. Like, without failure, who would you be? I wouldn’t be up here if I hadn’t fallen thousands of times, made mistakes. We all are human. We all have weaknesses.

I think when you look at a struggle in your life, just know that that’s just an opportunity for your character to grow. And that’s really just been the message. Simple. Like, if something’s going on in your life and you’re struggling, embrace it, because you’re growing.”

Johnny Weir: Not a ‘complimentator’


‘I’m a commentator, not a “complimentator.” Explaining falls and rough skates is hard because I have been that skater, and truth can hurt. But I would never be able to do my job without telling the truth about every aspect of figure skating and the performances you’ll see.’

— Johnny Weir (@JohnnyGWeir).

Matthew Hayden: Aggression and Rahul Dravid


“To me aggression is of two types. There is real aggression and then there is pretence. You have to look into someone’s eyes to see if there is any real aggression. When I look into Rahul Dravid’s eyes I know that though he might not be outwardly aggressive, he is inwardly aggressive: he wants to hit the ball, he wants to seek out opportunities. He has got fire in his belly. A lot of the aggression that you see now, like staring and chatting, is all guff. That is just a waste of time.”

—Matthew Hayden.

Celine Dion: Golf


Golf is a search for perfection, for balance. It’s about meditation and concentration. You have to use hand and brain.”

—Celine Dion.

Simone Biles: Memories


“If you’re having fun, that’s when the best memories are built.”

—Simone Biles.

John F Kennedy: Physical fitness


“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.”

—John F Kennedy.
