You are now an Olympic silver medalist and should be really proud of yourself. “
“The Olympics have been very stressful overall, in my opinion,” she continued. “Not having an audience, so many different variables play a role. It’s been a long week, it’s been a long Olympic process, it’s been a long year. And I think we’re just too stressed out. We should be having fun out here and sometimes that’s not the case. “
