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!
