Getting To Know Dana Kirk
• Greatest Athletic Moment ...
The moment in the 200 fly at the 2004 US Olympic Trials when I looked to both sides and realized that no one would be able to catch me before I qualified for the Olympics
Advice To Youngsters ... Always believe with your whole heart and never let anyone weigh you down - just believe
My parents were right when they told me ... You have to work for everything you get
The thing I love most about sports is ... It eliminates everything but the work you did and the talent you were born with
