Because I have a girlfriend, I try and take the straight and narrow path, which is good because it prevents VD.
I missed the Olympic team in 1996 - missed making the team. I tried to make a comeback in my sport, and soon after the Olympic trials, Johann Olav Koss, who is a Norwegian speed-skater, called me up and asked me to be a part of Olympic Aid. Now Olympic Aid is Right to Play. It's a wonderful, narrow focus.

Charles Hamilton Houston

Most people think of leaders as being these outgoing, very visible, and charismatic people, which I find to be a very narrow perception.
