Classic Quote: Max Schmeling

Posted on 02/12/2010

“Everything became secondary to the training. From the very start of my career it was clear to me that achievement was built on discipline. Accomplishment in sports demands the commitment of one’s entire self – morally, intellectually and spiritually. Avoid alcohol, cigarettes, live life according to a stricter diet. A slight delay in reaction time, a letdown in exact timing, a deficient punch or the famous glass jaw can cost one a career despite all the sacrifice.” –Max Schmeling from “Max Schmeling: An Autobiography” translated and edited by George Von Der Lippe.
