Daniel on winning
"Before I express how I feel, I have to say God is good. I feel very thankful to the Lord and thankful to all the people who encouraged me; my friends, parents, everyone."
Coach on winning
"What first comes to mind with Daniel is that she is a quick study and she is humble. It's a pleasure working with her. We only had three sessions with her, we knew it was going to be a lot of work, but what me accomplished was mind boggling. She was well prepared for today."
