Carly Patterson Quotes

“I want to do it for myself. It’s my goal and dream. All I can ask for is to get the chance and go out there and do the best I can, be as ready as I can.”

“Whoever you are, whatever your dream, you have to be strong in your head, and strong in your heart. Be strong. There‚Äôs no quoting in the person who wants it bad enough.”

“I’m not really nervous yet. There is nothing to be nervous about – just train your routines so that you’re ready for the competition.”

“Well, first I have to make the team, of course.”

“I think we all have had better days in competition.”

“Well, it’s still another two-day competition, so it’s really important to show that you’re ready. Every meet is really important right now. You’ve got to keep showing you can hit.”

“It’s so weird, … Last summer, it seemed I’d never get to the Olympics. Life is going by faster now that I’m not in the gym much. I don’t have to train at that same intensity.”

“I think we’re all really strong and we just need to keep working really hard. If we go out there and do our best we’ll win again. All we need to do is hit.”

“Yep, my body is doing good and everything feels good and I’m ready.”

“I thought I had gotten second, but I didn’t, so I was really happy.”

“I guess I’m kind of used to it because it’s always been that way for me.”

“I’ll always remember; it was the best day of my life.”
