It's sad to know I'm done. But looking back, I've got a lot of great memories.
Winning doesn't always mean being first. Winning means you're doing better than you've ever done before.
Anytime you ride against the best in the world, it becomes a learning process.
No matter what the competition is, I try to find a goal that day and better that goal.
I never could have achieved the success that I have without setting physical activity and health goals.
What I've learned from my own journey, and from my family's experience with cancer, is how important it is to stay positive and move forward. Not every day is going to be perfect; that's life. But staying positive is going to get you to the next day.
You have to have the right mind-set.
My parents put skates on me at age 2, the way it should be if you're serious, and I've always liked it.
I don't fear anything.
Even though I enjoy that head-to-head competition part, one of the things that drove me to long track was if I won or if I lost I want to know it's all on my shoulders and it didn't have anything to do with anybody else.
I love short track. I competed in short track, I was a world champion in 1986 but at that point in time it wasn't in the Olympic Games so I moved into long track. Short track is a blast to skate and it's a blast to watch.
I was really happy with my race, though. I beat my personal best by 1.2 seconds.
Apolo is going to have to keep skating so he can add more gold to his entourage.
I'm definitely going to miss hearing the sound of that gun.
The sport I love has taken me around the world and shown me many things.
