  • On deciding to return to the National Team after the Tokyo Olympics“Having not performed how we wanted in Tokyo, the possibility of returning was definitely in the back of my mind. The closer it got to the summer, the more motivated I was and then I realized that it was something that I felt like I could do and that I wanted to do. I want to go out with a bang.”
