“To be honest, after you’ve crossed the line at the Olympic Games, it is bedlam for the next, about, five or six hours. Media, press conference, dope control – you might get some food if you’re lucky. You might see family if you’re lucky.”

“People may think I’m crazy, but one of the ways I like to wind down my Friday is to get some of our household chores done, whether it’s cleaning or doing a big food shop, so the house is all nice for the weekend.”
