Prepare thoroughly. Commit totally. Deliver.

We win as a team, we lose as a team and we’re up at the crack of dawn as a team. That’s the only way we’ll be the best. World-class performances and the biggest prizes in the sport don’t come without sacrifice, without commitment. As the saying goes, if it doesn’t hurt, you’re not trying hard enough. And I’ve got 21 other guys who won’t let me forget it. Of course I want to win. But when there’s 22 of you, that desire is in the air, every second of every day. Because no matter how punishing the training, we all know how good it feels to be winners.
