Rau'shee Warren

Just about a month ago, at a Team USA event kicking off the countdown of 100 days until the London Games, we caught up with boxer Rau'shee Warren ...

On being the first Team USA boxer to qualify for three Olympics: "It means a lot. It shows how hard I work and how much I want it and how hungry I am. If you've got a dream, never give up. I went when I was 17-years-old, now I'm 25. I've always had a dream of winning a medal, the first two times I failed, so this time around I can't fail."

On what he's doing differently this time around: "This time around, I'm gonna be fighting first to end, every second, every minute. This is gonna be a different Rau'shee Warren."

On red hair, which has been that way for nine months and will stay that way for London: "This is something different I wanted to do -- I want people to remember me as a boxer but also for my hair. It's like the red devil coming out, I'm not taking it easy on nobody."
