  11. Training for and competing at the Olympics has shaped who I am as a person. It has taught me work ethic, resilience, self belief and that being a champion means being graceful in both victory and defeat. More importantly it has provided me with friendships and memories that I will treasure for a lifetime Happy #olympicday
