"I just refused to give up, to give up the dream. I was in excruciating pain, my arm was numb and they said it would be six months, if ever, for me to be back in the water. I thought my career was over, I was shattered but I never lost hope. I've always believed if you want to do something badly enough you will do it. Some told me that if you visualized healing an injury it would heal faster and that's what I did."
~2004 Australian Olympic diving team qualifier Lynda Dackiw, 4 months before the Athens Olympics.
