“I’ve never bothered about records. I’ve never performed well if I’m going for stuff like that. I like to win, but it’s not the be-all and end-all. I just try to enjoy the game, compete, enjoy being on the circuit, try to enjoy what I do and work hard at my game. Then you just let the snooker gods decide what they are going to decide. These 17 days, they were on my side.” – Ronnie O’Sullivan after winning his 7th World Snooker Championship
I heard the above from great snooker player O’Sullivan last week after he had just become the oldest ever world champion at 46 years of age.
The next day I had the opportunity to interview another sporting legend, champion jockey Rachael Blackmore.
