Integrity Quote of the Day

Sir Roger Bannister

Track and Field Legend

I made the decision that I wouldn't compete in the Olympic Games and I reached a position in which I was being criticized in the press for not racing often enough. They said, "Here's this chap. We think he's good. We want to see him." I said, "Well, no. I run if I want to run. There is nobody paying me to run. If I think that five races a year is the right for me, and if I feel that I'll work up towards a peak in the middle of the season, that's what I'm going to do."
