On what the sport of gymnastics means to him...
"After fifteen years of practice and competition, gymnastics has become part of who I am. In fact, I'm not too sure where I'd be right now without it. I attribute my discipline, dedication, refined concentration and confidence to my participation in the sport of gymnastics. No other aspect of my life has ever consistently challenged all four of these elements of my character."
