I think there's nothing that can drive you more than a huge dream or a huge challenge.
Fear has been a big battle, it runs rampant in my sport so I love to overcome that, to challenge it head on, because there is nothing that feels as accomplished as overcoming a fear, and something that has blocked you in such a big way.
I want to do my hard dives really well, I want to see what my true potential in this sport really is. I want to grasp that.
There are a lot of eating disorders in our sport, so I try very hard not to get consumed by all that.
I definitely want to win a gold medal, that should be everybody's goal.
There's nothing like overcoming something that scares you so much. Nothing feels better.
The women are stepping up their degree of difficulty more than the men. A lot of us do the same dives as the men now.
I was vegetarian for a long time, and in the last four years I started eating chicken and fish. I feel like it really built up my strength a lot.
