“It’s not about that for me,” Caeleb told NBC about why he doesn’t keep the medals. “I don’t keep any of that stuff. You guys should be jealous – I get to do the fun part, which is racing. I get to enjoy the race. I don’t need a piece of metal to remind me of that. I got to enjoy it.”

He added, “I think the sport chose me … I love the challenges it throws my way.”
