We could all use a little motivation from time to time.
“Mainly, I like to have fun. Swimming is all about having fun, and I am firm believer that you should keep swimming as long as you are having fun, but I can say that it becomes much more fun as you get older and learn more about the sport, life, and especially more about yourself“.
“There is water in every lane, so it is OK.”
Ian Thorpe (on being in Lane 5 for a final)
“You can’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get“.
“I swam the race like I trained to swim it. It is not mathematical. I just let my body do it. It is a lot easier if you let your body do what it is trained for.”
“If you’re not on your ‘A’ game in our workouts every day, you’re going to get absolutely smoked.”
The swimmer who says, “It can’t be done” is passed by the swimmer who is doing it.
Keep working hard and stay focused. Remember, your team is proud of you!
