10 Quotes From Star Athletes

It’s no secret we all need a pick-me-up every now and again. With the summer Olympics coming, we’ve considered ourselves lucky to speak with a few gold medalists here at The New Potato. We were also lucky to catch up with the charming quarterback Cam Newton before his first big Superbowl this year. And then of course there was prima ballerina Misty Copeland before she took the stage at ABT.

All of these athletes are role models, and all of them – not surprisingly – had something motivating and inspiring to say. It’s Monday, and on Mondays we all need a reason to take a deep breath, reboot and get excited about the week ahead (rather than depressed about it). Peruse above for timeless quotes from the people who never give up and never surrender: We know it’s cheesy but sometimes we all need cheesy.

Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose…K we’re done now.
