When Worlds Collided
“When you finish second you have to take a real close look at how you performed, how you thought and how these thoughts caused you to feel,” Johnson said later. “We broke those things down.” He had heard the words before, but now he absorbed them: “You have to do it on that day. You have to do it at the time when they fire the gun. You have to be fully aware and prepared for anything that might happen.”

Simply, as good as it gets.
