One of the only Americans competing in their 5th Olympics, Kerri Walsh Jennings has been a dominant athlete in volleyball for a long time. This year, she takes a stab at her 4th Gold medal at the Olympics in a row. Though she has a new partner in this year’s tournament, she is still as determined as ever.
Kerri Walsh Jennings is a special athlete and in her long career, she’s had especially inspirational remarks. Here are some of her greatest quotes of all time, for sports and for life.
“In my heart, I’m so far from done.”
“I don’t want to be better than you or her or him – I want to be better than I am right now”
“A true competitor works the hardest, cares the most, and makes the best of what they have.”
“You touch every other ball and, if you screw up, you only have one more person to back you up. You can’t go hide in the corner.”
Passion is a huge prerequisite to winning. It makes you willing to jump through hoops, go through all the ups and downs and everything in between to reach your goal.
