|Why this sport?
||"I was a tiny tot, about four years old, and people would bribe me with a pie or an ice block to fill in for my brothers' relay teams. From there it went on to winning red ribbons when I was about six or seven years old and I loved that. That's what got me interested, and I haven't stopped since."
