The look on Michael’s face when he came back from receiving his first gold medal is something that I’ll never forget. It was the sign of someone that is absolutely, purely happy, and it was…amazing. —Bob Bowman
Aliya won 5 medals at this meet, 4 of them gold and she’s almost 20 (WTF). No biggie.

"They come in and I think they’re like even synchronized in their walk and it’s like the wind was probably naturally blowing through their hair because they’re just studs!" - Lolo Jones
Even though she grew up playing football, shooting hoops and running races against all the boys in her neighborhood, U.S. 800-meter champion Alysia Montano never wanted to be thought of as one of them.
As a result, she started wearing a flower behind her right ear to remind the boys they were getting beat by a girl.
"The flower to me means strength with femininity. I think that a lot of people say things like you run like a girl. That doesn’t mean you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you’re strong."
