AE: A lot of us (athletes) would dream of being an Olympic champion, but I don’t think very many people think about — I certainly didn’t think about — what that means. It’s just a sport. It’s just swimming, and yet so much can be imbued into that. There’s a responsibility there. I have an ability to respond to those expectations, thoughts, hopes, and dreams of other people. But at nineteen, I certainly did not feel ready to carry the weight of that.
