Nobody wants to fall in relay, especially not at the Olympics. This quick moment will probably haunt me forever but I can’t erase what happened, I must simply learn to live with the situation. But for now, and for the next few weeks, I have other things to focus on because the World Championship is approaching.
With the support of my teammates, I managed to put aside this difficult event because despite everything, I still have work to do and I have to stay concentrated. I already dread the end of the season because with a lighter schedule, I will certainly have time to think about the fall I did in Russia. Ironically, I had never fallen in a relay before, never until Sochi. The idea of reventing my teammates to win a medal is undoubtedly the toughest part. However, I left Sochi realizing how blessed I am to be surrounded by a team as united, a team that stands strong together, regardless of the results. We have worked extremely hard to be at the best of ourselves for the Olympics and nobody can take that away from us.
Please continue to encourage athletes that are working so hard to succeed in their sport. Good or bad results, your support always makes us happy.
Now, in about a week will be the short track World Championship in Montreal. This is a major event, so if you have the opportunity to go and watch the competition at Maurice Richard arena, you won’t be disappointed!
