Remarkable kid, remarkable woman. I wish I could tap into her confidence flow. What must such self-assurance be like...

I remember reading, way back in the mid-70's in the sports section of the Atlanta Journal, an article about her, in which she stated (not really boasting, just matter-of-fact) that partly due to her intense training, she had the best body of any woman she had ever seen.
