Walsh, Bill

2.

Howe, Gordie

3.

Clough, Arthur Hugh

Lamb, Charles

6.
Competition is the spice of sports; but if you make spice the whole meal you'll be sick.
Leonard, George

7.
It's amazing how much of this is mental. Everybody's in good shape. Everybody knows how to ski. Everybody has good equipment. When it really boils down to it, it's who wants it the most, and who's the most confident on his skis.
Crist, Reggie

8.
Once you're physically capable of winning a gold medal, the rest is ninety percent mental.

Shakespeare, William

10.
Our life is not really a mutual helpfulness; but rather, it's fair competition cloaked under due laws of war; it's a mutual hostility.
Carlyle, Thomas

11.
The price which society pays for the law of competition, like the price it pays for cheap comforts and luxuries, is great; but the advantages of this law are also greater still than its cost -- for it is to this law that we owe our wonderful material development, which brings improved conditions in its train. But, whether the law be benign or not, we must say of it: It is here; we cannot evade it; no substitutes for it have been found; and while the law may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.
Carnegie, Andrew

12.
Show me a guy who is afraid to look bad, and I'll show you a guy you can beat every time.
Brock, Lou

13.
When the game is over it is really just beginning.
Kramer, Jerry

14.
The difference of great players is at a certain point in a match they raise their level of play and maintain it. Lesser players play great for a set, but then less.
Sampras, Pete

15.
Every man in the world is better than someone else and not as good someone else.
Saroyan, William

16.
I worked very hard. I felt I could play the game. The only thing that could stop me was myself.
Abbott, Jim

17.
You have to defeat a great players aura more than his game.
Riley, Pat

18.
You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your tricks of war.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

19.
Competition is the whetstone of talent.
Saying

20.
Mental toughness is to physical as four is to one.
Knight, Bobby

21.
Running for money doesn't make you run fast. It makes you run first.
Jipcho, Ben

22.
The general fact is that the most effective way of utilizing human energy is through an organized rivalry, which by specialization and social control is, at the same time, organized co-operation.
Cooley, Charles Horton

23.
Every time you go out on the ice, there are slight flaws. You can always think of something you should have done better. These are the things you must work on.
Hamill, Dorothy

24.
I don't psyche myself up. I psyche myself down. I think clearer when I'm not psyched up.
Cauthen, Steve

25.
The medals don't mean anything and the glory doesn't last. It's all about your happiness. The rewards are going to come, but my happiness is just loving the sport and having fun performing.
Kersee, Jackie Joyner

26.
The ability to learn faster than your competitors may be the only sustainable competitive advantage.
Geus, Arie de

27.
When you're riding, only the race in which you're riding is important.
Shoemaker, Willie

28.
He can run but he can't hide.
Louis, Joe

29.
You have to be able to center yourself, to let all of your emotions go... Don't ever forget that you play with your soul as well as your body.
Abdul-Jabbar, Kareem

30.
I watch a man shoot pool for an hour. If he misses more than one shot I know I can beat him.
Lassiter, Luther

Morris, William
