General Interest

General
RECOVERING FROM RIO
She found it difficult to get over her disappointment at not winning a medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. "It actually took me a year to enjoy diving again. I remember in Budapest at the [2017] World Championships, I was a little bit like not in the right place mentally. I found it hard. I knew it was going to be hard after Rio. I knew obviously I had dark thoughts, 'I don't want to dive anymore. I'm not passionate anymore.' I was crying a lot also. But I knew that it was a phase. When I took the time to really appreciate what I did in the diving world and then think about myself, finding a way to get that fire back, this is where I started to see the bigger picture. The difference between me now and me before is, now I'm trying to create my own story, I want to be the diver that I want to be." (olympicchannel.com, 26 Jun 2019; cbc.ca, 05 May 2018)
