George Edward Woodberry
I would be happy with an Olympic bronze. What I don't have is an Olympic medal.
Winning is great, but being able to finish my last Olympic Games on American soil was very important.

I always have my journal with me. It was handmade by a guy at the San Telmo market in Buenos Aires. If you go there he can make you one. It's leather and bronze and I'm able to replace the paper when it runs out. It has a lion on the cover that I say is there to protect my thoughts.
