“That period through the Olympic Games in Hong Kong is a blur. To bury your sister and then you mom three months later and at the same time be dealing with the whole build up to the Selection Trials was draining.

I love the South. I like the gardens and flowers-azaleas, camellias, the scent of magnolias, the vivid colors of crepe myrtles. I like the food-some of the best cooks in the world are in the South.
