Favourite movies: Harry Potter (2001-2011)"I can’t be a wizard. I mean, I’m just Harry. Just Harry."
Buffy: “Lie to me.”
Giles: “Yes, it’s terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after.”
Both realities. Both realities in my head.
The New York Times did a very tough piece criticizing you for being more image than accomplishment. How hard was that to deal with?
I think that it was crazy just because it was two days before I competed, and then the fact that it was from the U.S. media. Like, I mean they should be supporting our U.S. Olympic athletes, and instead they just ripped me to shreds, and I just thought that was crazy because I work six days a week everyday for four years for a twelve second race. And the fact that they just tore me apart was just heartbreaking. (x)
