Swimmer Quotes 

  "There is water in every lane, so it is OK."
Ian Thorpe (on being in Lane 5 for a final).

"I always have on my headphones
to block out all of the other distractions and I'm just focused on doing the
best that I can.... There are few of them … DMX Party Up ... Mack 10 BC and Ice
Cube Connected for Life. I also listen to the Eminem CD …whichever song really
gets me going that night".

Michael Phelps

"Susie had no talent whatsoever.
She's a little person who couldn't even make a final at a state meet - coming
and showing the world that on sheer guts and determination you can do anything
you want!"
Susie Maroney's coach Dick Caine after her 200 kilometre
marathon swim from Mexico to Cuba

"You can't put a limit on
anything. The more you dream, the farther you get".
Michael Phelps

"I swam the race like I trained to
swim it. It is not mathematical. I just let my body do it. It is a lot easier if
you let your body do what it is trained for."
Ian Thorpe
