Jones: My mom has it somewhere. I wasn't going to be a bad sport. I wasn't representing myself. I was representing my country, and that would have made the United States of America look bad. So I took it.

SI: You breed dogs and horses, and you have plenty of chickens on your property in Pensacola, Fla. What is it about raising these animals that you like so much?
