worn in gold medal game against Brazil 2-1.
I know if he'd won a gold medal in 2002, things might have been different. But there's a sense of unfinished business, and Jeremy has a tendency to very much go with his heart.
I simply am the lucky man who got this gold medal here.
Tomas, talk about a gold medal performance. That was a gold medal performance.
If he wins a gold medal for the U.S., that's his goal. Then he's done an excellent job and he had a great plan. He won't have let the country down. He will have won a gold medal for the country.
I'm very proud of this gold medal. My son was born on Monday, and it is obvious that I will name him 'Helsinki.
We're the first men to win a gold medal and 100 years from now people are going to say we're the first team. I'm sure there's going to be many more that win gold. We were the first and it's very special.
My goal by my senior year is to win at least one gold medal for Leavenworth High School. Maybe we can leave our own little mark here.
It feels fantastic -- I can't believe it. I didn't even expect to win one gold medal so I'm overwhelmed.
This win is for him. Winning the gold medal is a great feeling because we are a great team and we believe in each other.
Certainly Jana was extremely disappointed for the England girls and would have preferred to have won the gold medal fair and square.
It's a huge disappointment. We were the defending gold medal champions and you want to repeat and have that feeling again, but everybody was gunning for us.
Why did I come back? I mean, I was really satisfied with the gold medal in Salt Lake City, but at the same time, I thought I was too young to retire. Cycling didn't go well for me in 2003 so I went back to speed skating full time.
To me, it's a big accomplishment. It's an accomplishment as big as winning a gold medal. I feel like a new person. Emotionally I'm in the right place.
Anytime Canada makes an early exit it is a shock. I thought they could compete for a gold medal. It just shows hockey is a world sport now.
I'm very happy about this gold medal. I heard it was a record. I know I have four (gold) medals at home.
Growing up, you always dream of winning a gold medal. But coming into these Games, it wasn't something I was focused on. I'm just enjoying skating. This is the best season ever. I think that this year, my 3,000 meters has been stronger than the 1,500. The 1,500 has been anybody's race this year. When I was first, I still didn't know if that was enough.
I am so happy for Clara that she got a gold medal. The 5,000 is not my race and it is definitely her race.
If I can run a four-minute mile, I'd win a gold medal because no one has ever done it before.
I respect both Peter and Brock as fighters, but Audley was the gold medal winner in 2000. Quite frankly, I just don't see what all the fuss is about, especially if you look at each of their individual records.
I'd cut an arm off to win that gold medal. The pole vault would be difficult but that's a rubbish event for me anyway!
It is a special day for us with our first Olympic gold medal.
I'm angry to answer such questions. I won a gold medal today, and I have to answer these questions.
Knowing that I've already got one gold medal at home helps a bit with the entire situation. Skiing isn't everything in the world and a gold medal isn't everything in the world. And I'm not badly off. In fact, I'm quite happy.
Winning an Olympic quota place itself was a very hard job. Add to that a gold medal as well.... I mean it was a fantastic feeling. All the credit goes to my coach, and ultimately, this was the first Olympic quota place for India, so I'm really proud.
