"Don't worry about what other people say if they have negative comments. Do you and go out there and be fierce." — Gabby Douglas, Gymnastics

"If you're trying to be the best at something you have to surround yourself with people who are going to motivate you and who are going to push you to never quit, never give up, and with their help, and with their motivation with your drive, you can literally overcome and accomplish anything." — Matt Stutzman, U.S. Paralympic Archery

"I think that the people who really see success truly enjoy what they're doing." — Alise Post, BMX

"Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do it because you can. And I've had people tell me that, so then you just have to prove them wrong. And I think that's my favorite part." — Simone Biles, Gymnastics
