"I didn't win this gold medal by myself."

"It belongs to everyone who helped me along the way - the entire community. I would like nothing more than to help our children win gold medals at the 2012 Olympic Games, and that's why I'm working hard to bring the Olympic Games to the Bay Area in 2012. Please join us!"

    - Brandi Chastain
