"You need to see it for one to believe, so just being that face for somebody else and that next generation behind me. I’ve always wanted to be someone that someone could look up to and not only say, ‘I want to be like her,’ but also ‘I want to be better than her.’"—Dalilah Muhammad
"Now there is more of an interest in athlete stories. But, it takes more - more people putting themselves out there, more people sharing their journeys, more people wanting to hear these stories, and more people being excited about it all."—Valarie Allman
