Quotes from the news wire:
I just felt like it would be a little bit better to take a back seat and work on my mindfulness. I knew that the girls would do an absolutely great job, and I didn't want to risk the team a medal for my screw ups because they worked way too hard for that, i took a step back because I didn't want to do something silly out there and get injured. I thought it was best if the girls took over and did the rest of the job, which they absolutely did.
There's a big line on what you can and can’t do, what you can and can’t say to these kids rather than whenever I was growing up, i would say (back then): ‘OK, you say that. I’m pissed off but I’m going to do my work.' Now it’s like, I’ve even told the other girls: ‘Don’t take it to heart. They don’t mean to say that to you. So just let it roll off your shoulder.'.
Everything needs to be visible, and the coaches know that, the coaches know that they are watched at all times, not only from the viewing arena but by cameras. They know that. That should not distract from what they’re doing if they’re doing their job. They just know that there are cameras and they know that nothing is a secret. So yeah, just do whatever is right and you don’t even have to worry that anyone is watching you.
I'm pretty pleased because that's how I train beam and it finally felt good to go out there and hit a beam routine... because I feel like every time... I just bomb it, overall, I still feel like I could do better. My goal going into tonight was to not be great, just to do well. I feel like I accomplished that and made it into finals. Yay!
I dont mean to cry, but its hard coming here for an organization having had them failed us so many times. And we had one goal and weve done everything that theyve asked us for, even when we didnt want to and they couldnt do one damn job. You had one job. You literally had one job and you couldnt protect us.
When we tweet, it obviously goes a long way, were blessed to be given a platform so that people will hear and listen. But you know, its not easy coming back to the sport. Coming back to the organization that has failed you. But you know, at this point, I just try to think, Im here as a professional athlete with my club team and stuff like that. Because its not easy being out here. I feel every day is a reminder of what I went through and what Ive been through and what Im going through and how Ive come out of it.
Growing up, my biological mom was suffering from drug and alcohol abuse, and she was in and out of jail, i never had mom to run to. But I do remember always being hungry and afraid ... I remember them saying, 'Ok, you know how you called us grandma and grandpa? You can call us mom and dad now, if you want to. I was like, 'Yeah, I can do that.'.
The girls did their jobs. We went out there and had fun with it. It comes from all the practices we’ve done. We’re so prepared for this, we came into it mentally stronger. We were like, ‘OK, we’re actually really prepared for this, maybe even over-prepared, so let’s go and have some fun.’ I think that’s what we all did.
