"I know that failure and losing is a major setback and it hurts you. There are so many times when I'm just like '(I) might be done, I quit.’ But then, I take a day or two and I can take away something from that. Then I use that to eventually win. When I'm talking to younger generations I'm like: 'You lost this race, you didn't achieve your goal but that doesn't mean you can't.' My first time I tried to make an Olympic team I failed miserably. Now, I sit here as a three-time Olympian and one of the few athletes to go to a Summer and Winter Olympics. Just because you fail doesn't mean you always will continue to do so. You just have to use it all as momentum and get better."
