Don Bradman: I Don’t Drink

Interviewer: “Mr Bradman, you must have a wonderful physique to be capable of endurance required in your amazing world’s record.”
Don Bradman: “Well, I don’t think so. I don’t think my physique is any different to anybody else’s. I think one of the main reasons why I am able to carry on so long is the fact that I don’t drink, and I don’t smoke. I don’t do anything to get myself out of condition. Consequently, I haven’t got to train to get myself into condition to play a match.”
