“grateful and humbled
” by Bowe’s kindness
“Definitely not the way I imagined qualifying for my second Olympic team… but I guess I had to one-up my story from the 2018 トライアル. I’m incredibly grateful and humbled by the kindness of @BrittanyBowe in helping me to secure a chance at reaching my goals in #Beijing2022,” 彼女は書いた.
