Bryan's Q&A
How often are you home in Hawaii and how does California compare with living on the islands? (from Sarah)
October 9th, 2007

I only get home to Hawaii once a year. I usually try to make it a month long trip so that I can see family. However things do get a little tough to juggle because when ever I go home I have to do a lot of business as well. Sometimes I wish that I could be in two places at once.
California, is not my favorite place. I miss things like family, green mountains, morning rains, clear skies, and local food. However, I am lucky. I am very accepted into my alma mater’s (Azusa Pacific University) community. It is where I train everyday and spend a lot of my time. Being involved there gives me a small taste of the close-knit island life.


When did you really realize that you had a chance to be an Olympic caliber athlete? (from Hideki)
October 2nd, 2007

I had dreamt of being in the Olympics since I was probably eight years old. However it was a very long time before I realized that my dreams had a good shot of becoming reality. I think it was when I took third place at the US National meet in 2001. I was 21 years old.
