“Competing on the world stage at the Olympics is one of the most stressful things I have ever done in my life […] The ability to relax, recharge and get away from stressors in an environment like this can make all the difference in being ready for these competitions. I look forward to being that positive influence on the minds of the greatest team in the world – Team USA.”
