I got a bronze medal and I can't complain about that, the only African-American to get a medal in the Winter Olympics.
I was always very strong in math, physics and calculus.
My skating is a very emotional thing that comes from the heart, never doing it for the medal.
Probably the '86 nationals. That was my first real national title and first real statement I ever made in figure skating, and my life changed after I returned.
My mother introduced me to many different things, and figure skating was one of them. I just thought that it was magical having to glide across the ice.

I tell people I'm too stupid to know what's impossible. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true.
I would make my mom buy me the toy doctor kit.
Being an Olympian, I always have this strong belief in excellence.
But I like it when my patients are impressed not knowing that I was an Olympian.
Right now I am doing my residency in orthopedic research.
