Question: You've received a lot of bad press and some of it has been very sarcastic. How do you feel about that?SUDHAHOTA: I think I’m in a position and I’m a person that most people don’t understand. Some of the things I do look fake and calculating. But they are dead serious and goal-oriented, with a mind going straight ahead. They feel the reason I don’t want to talk to anybody at a track meet is because that’s the way I am, instead of because I just want to concentrate on the competition.
