Bradie Tennell, Olympic ice skater.
"I hate getting up at four o'clock in the morning on freezing cold winter days (to practice), but I love just being able to go out on the ice and just skate. I love to feel the wind in my face. I love how powerful I feel when I jump—just skating in general. I love the sport so much."
"I take a lot of pride in my consistency. I’ve never been a nervous competitor. I've always enjoyed competing, (and feeling) the energy in the arena."
