Sorry I have been out of touch since I left for Korea. I’m
sure you already know the results, but let me fill you in on what went on
during the Olympic month!
I went into the games wearing the number 1 Bib. Of course,
people kept asking me if that made the pressure higher than it already is for
the Olympics, but I kept saying it helped my confidence. I stand by that and believe
that I was more confident wearing that number one bib because I know I had the
potential to Win. After my first qualifications run I was in 5th
place and had the opportunity to take part in opening ceremonies that night.
Opening Ceremonies were definitely a highlight of the
Olympics. It was truly incredible walking into the stadium behind the flag with
all of Team USA. You could feel the excitement and the buildup of the games as
we stormed through the stadium. Walking through the arena with so many
incredible athletes who have all dedicated their lives to be here was so
inspiring and motivating!
Just finished up our Olympic Training camp at Deer Valley Resort, and leaving tomorrow for Korea! Getting really excited to be a part of Team USA and participate in the Olympic Games!! Our Qualifications kick off in 9 days!! All of our events will be live streamed on NBC so make sure to check the schedule to watch!
What an incredible week at the Deer Valley World Cup!! After a stressful start to day one, barely making qualifications and then sneaking into top 6 for super finals, I walked away with a 2nd place. I was able to step that up for day 2 and take home a win!! I couldn't be happier to share it with my family and so many other supporters who came to cheer me on! You guys are incredible!! So stoked to share the podium with two other Teammates on our home turf! Stoked to be going to Mt. Tremblant in the yellow leaders bib for the last World Cup leading into the Olympics!
