Quotes from the news wire:
I’m kind of accepting and trying to prepare for basically the discomfort of the one situation that you hope would be this joyous, amazing event, what people see is the pictures with the Olympic rings and, ‘We went to the Opening Ceremonies!’ and: ‘Look at these cool outfits! This is such a fun time. This is so great!’ But honestly, it’s terrifying for the entire two weeks straight.
I would never have expected to feel in this moment -- severely underperforming in an Olympics -- I would never have felt that humans could be so kind, i never would've expected that the most surprising thing of my Olympic experience is how kind people have been in the face of my failure. I mean, it is failure. It's OK to say that. I am OK with that and I'm sorry for it, but I also was trying and I'm proud of that.
The Associated Press feels like a really big letdown, i was trying to kind of look back and think about the last days and what I've been trying to do and what I've been doing with my skiing that would suggest that on the fifth gate I would push Mikaela Shiffrin of Team USA a little bit too hard to actually stay on the course. There's nothing that could have suggested that. I didn't not finish a single run. My skiing has been really solid.
You certainly don’t want to be put in the position of having to choose between human rights like morality versus being able to do your job.

I was really pushing on the second run and I didn’t handle that very well. I made some mistakes, but then again, I could have been out of the course.

Ski racing doesn't receive a ton of attention outside of the Olympic cycle in the U.S. so to be able to keep that ball rolling through the ESPYs is super cool, it's good for me and my brand and that's all great but to be honest, it's cooler because it means people are watching the sport and I get to share my passion with more people.
I had a bit of a crisis in the beginning of the season and I wasn’t used to these kind of problems. We found the right set-up during the Christmas break. I learnt a lot from this season, i would never have made it on my own. After all, I’m only 20. I’m lucky to be surrounded by the right people.
