"mental preparation "--from looking at Adam he's had a lot of physical preparation as well wonder if he's share some of those secrets ?

He was a complete washout at the last Olympics.

Better stick to his goal of launching steroid-free powdered milkshakes and using some o' that Darden business acumen.

looks like he just buste4d a nut as you kids say.
