Gwen Torrence

"track Is Ok, But It's Not My Life"

Torrence told Springer that after the Games she was looking forward to simply raising her son, eating fast food, and relaxing. She had never been fully committed to her track career, and ran simply because she had the talent and the ability to do so; she was never as driven or as consumed by her sport as some other athletes. She told Springer, "Track is OK, but it's not my life. Many days I think, 'What am I doing, a 30-year-old woman out here?'"
