Taking The World By Storm - Anne Donovan
"Premier memory, for sure, is on the medal stand after the '88 Olympics. It was my last Olympics, and I knew it. I was co-captain of that team, I had gone from being a starter to being deep on the bench and then, in the gold-medal game, having an opportunity to make an impact on that game. Standing up on the platform - I had family there in Korea - and that was it, and I had finally accomplished it.
"I'm sorry to babble here, but in '84 they (Russia) boycotted our Olympics. In '80, we boycotted, '84, they boycotted, so '88 was the first time in all those years that we actually had a real gold medal. So it was very emotional." (8/1)
"For me, it's still the ultimate as an athlete. And I would never pass on it." (5/26, Seattle Times)
