That is what great athletes can do: they give us a model of striving for human perfection.
Quite simply, my diet has and will always be everything in moderation. People look at Olympic athletes and think they must cut out all those things everyone else indulges in, and speaking for myself, I never did.
In cross-country skiing, athletes propel themselves over distances of ten and twenty miles - a physical challenge that places intense demands on the ability of their red blood cells to deliver oxygen to their muscles.
A White House dinner is the American family assembled, from labor leaders to billionaires, actors, architects, academicians and athletes.
Since I achieved something, running has exploded in my country. For me sometimes it is difficult even to know who the athletes are who are competing at the highest level. There are thousands.
Americans' addiction to sports, with the NFL at the top, is based on the excitement generated by the potential for the unexpected great play which can only happen with honest competition from great athletes.
I have read many studies out of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and they demonstrated that Vitamin E, Co-Q-10, and Fish Oil could protect the immune system of athletes and prevent disease.
I'm pretty proud of having completed a marathon myself, so I can only imagine the pride that real athletes feel when they are picked for the Olympic or the Paralympic Games.
I never thought that shoes would be the reason that you recruit players, but it's a factor. I think we need to get the shoe companies out of the lives of the athletes. I think we need to get it back to where parents and coaches have more of a say than peripheral people, but that's easier said than done.
We're professional athletes. People know who we are, and if there's some way we can help with a friend or someone in need, that's a responsibility we have. I really strongly believe that.
Nutrition is also a valuable component that can help athletes both protect themselves and improve performance.
I've found that my athletes run their best races after about 10 weeks of intense training.
The decathlon takes so long to learn that people who are good athletes don't want to go back to the beginning again.
My kids are good athletes and runners. They run in a bunch of sports.
In general, I enjoy athletes who have a strong character who let their abilities speak for themselves.
There's that initial reticence for some athletes to take you seriously.
I had a great interest in sports. I had three older brothers who were great athletes. I was not.
George J. Mitchell
As athletes, most of the time we deal with fans cussing at us, saying how much we suck.
We need new athletes all the time because we need new games every day - fudging just a little on the definition of the word 'need.' We like to have new games every day, and, if we are to have a constant and endless flow of games, we need a constant flow of athletes.
My overwhelming concern will always be the well-being of the athletes. In Olympic sport, it is rare for competitors not to devote half their young life to this. Their families will have given up all sorts of things to allow them to do that.
A lot of athletes have star quality, but they just can't perform in front of a camera. So no matter how good-looking you are, no matter what kind of presence you have, you still have to be able to be a convincing performer to become a star.
Richard D. Zanuck
Actors geek out over athletes. Everyone knows that.
I'm in the perfect position. It's a sports position and a political position where I can help better the lives of athletes around the world.
I don't think there are really enough meetings in Britain for our athletes to compete properly, and because of this a lot of the talent we have has been stunted.
I think the athletes respond well to me because I have been successful.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
