If you could compete in an event, what would it be?
Gymnastics, hands down. Just being able to fly and bend gravity in practically every event would be so electrifying. I used to do it, but stopped when my coach had to move to Hawaii for her husband’s work.
Favorite event to watch?
Gymnastics and swimming. Gymnastics because the teams are so gorgeous, so talented, and everything is so precise, and the pressure is so high.. it just keeps you on the edge of your seat. The same goes with swimming– a second is such a huge unit of time in that sport, and seeing competitors glide expertly through the water (even in more thrashy strokes like butterfly) is just so awe inspiring. Also, cuz swimmer bodies and Michael Phelps’ stare-downs, amirite?
Olympian you most admire?
This is tough. But I’m honestly torn between Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez… Both because they’re incredible gymnasts with incredible drives… Simone has expectations of herself through the roof and the passion to race past them, and Laurie is just so enchanting. If you’ve ever seen her do a floor routine… it’s both so graceful and playful and full of spunky personality… she might be only 16 but she’s got so much talent and poise.
What sports do you currently play?
I mean, I try to run daily?
However I do wanna see if I can try to join a club/intramural gymnastics team when I get to college… I really do miss it.
Summer or Winter Olympics?
Summer, probably because all my favorite events are during the summer and I can watch it more since I don’t have school. (^Couldn’t have said it better Noor!) But I also love figure skating so….?!?
Ever been to see the Olympics in person?
Alas, I have not. One day though! Next time around I’ll be a senior in college, and I might be more able to travel to wherever they’re holding them (:
A sport that should be in the Olympics?
Yeesh, I dunno… there are already so many sports already…! Hmmmm what about juggling?
What do you think would be going through your head right before you were about to compete in the Olympics?
I would be low-key freaking out, but also super excited, but also freaked out because of all the pressure… but in the end I’d just try to reassure myself that I’d worked so hard to get there.. and that all I need to do is relax, savor every moment, and stay focused.
