I didn't make the Olympic team. I wish it were more complicated, but it comes down to simply not meeting the criteria. I failed my goal. I've been struggling these past two seasons with performing at World Cups like I do when I train. Standing at the top of a World Cup course, surrounded by the world's best athletes, is an indescribable experience. It's incredibly difficult to prepare mentally for the feelings running through your mind in the start gate, knowing you have 30 seconds to put on your best performance just so you get a second run.
