McLaughlin’s only interactions on Twitter before Thursday were a few retweets from her cover story with L’Officiel USA. Instagram에서, she posted the same L’Officiel cover and a video promoting the Jonas Brothers making an appearance on NBC.

I think when you have a lot of outside voices coming in, it can definitely alter what you have going on internally,” 그녀가 말했다, 통하다 뉴욕 타임즈. “The more I can distance myself from that, the more I can stay as calm and as relaxed as possible.

그녀는 덧붙였다: “A lot of that is outside things I can’t control and I just tried to minimize it. I stayed off social media, stayed in my room, talked to friends and family and stuck to what I knew.

McLaughlin came from behind to run down fellow American Dalilah Muhammad after the very last hurdle. She clocked in at 51.46 – breaking a world record. Muhammad finished with a 51.58, which also broke the original world record, but she finished behind the 21-year-old New Jersey native.

It is McLaughlin’s first Olympic gold medal. She had won gold in the 2019 World Championships in the 4×400-meter relay and a silver in the same competition in the 400-meter hurdles.
