Being at the Olympic Games is an experience like no other. Going through this process with Chris and his team has been an opportunity to watch and learn what it takes.
The boys had a saying all season and that was "being olympic". They literally approached every situation these past months with this motto firmly dictating their course of action. Being olympic encompassed so many things and ultimately led them to where they are now.
Watching this process for me has been huge component of where I am today. Their commitment, intensity, and professionalism has translated directly into my recent success in the mat.
Being at the Games is getting me so fired up to make the big push. This is my time.
