Brandon Leslie juggles responsibilities while training for the OlympicsAcording to Brandon Leslie, he doesn't need an Olympic gold medal to prove he's one of the best, but it sure would be nice to be the first Navajo to earn it--even though it seems that his goal is moving faster and further away from him.
