Here's what Nikki McSweeney of the British Bobsleigh team said about one of the poems in the book Hopes, Dreams & Medals!
"So 'Adrenaline Junkie', I like the poem, as an adrenaline junkie when you read it, it makes sense, we do things to get our adrenaline going, almost to the risk of death. As extreme as it may sound that is what gets the adrenaline pumping. Like with bobsleigh its a high risk sport, as with skiing and such things as bungee jumping.
When you read through the poem, as I read it, I read it faster as I go through it up until 'You need the bright excitement'. After then I read it slower, as if I've got the the bottom of a bobsleigh run or at the bottom of the mountain after I've skied down it. Its almost that breath of relief you're taking that you have survived
I love it!!!! I feel it gives me the same feeling that I do at the end of the bob run.... like I want to do it again!!!"
