“It feels absolutely incredible to win my third world title. Especially in such epic conditions, at home in front of all my family and friends. Everything has really come together in the past month and I am extremely thankful for all the special moments I have been given in and out of the water.
There were so many ups and downs this season. It was seriously a roller coaster. The moment I felt like things were going my way, the tides would turn and then they weren’t. It was a constant seesaw between results and positions and always a mental battle trying to stay happy, focused and motivated.
I am constantly processing and working through my thoughts and feelings, deciding which ones are beneficial and which ones I need to let go. Competing on tour is exhausting. It’s all about balance. You have to find a way to let go of the competition and enjoy. Surround yourself with good people and make the journey worthwhile no matter what the result.”
