Well, Beijing was extremely special, because it’s where I became an Olympic gold medalist. I was there for an entire month, and I never got to see the Great Wall, or see and do anything along those lines. I feel like that’s just kinda going to stick with me for the rest of my life, because that’s just what people want to see from a gymnast. I think that piece of advice applies across the board in life. They are stored in my parents’ house in Dallas in a safe. One by itself isn’t bad, but because I won five medals at that Olympics, all of those combined are definitely a little heavy. That’s a really great question, because obviously the medals are amazing, but I don’t want to be remembered just for winning five Olympic medals.
I didn’t really see much of the city, although every time I hear the word “Beijing,” it just resonates because that was such a memorable moment. I think it’s more like, when I look back at the Olympics, I was 18 years old, and I was wearing this hot-pink leotard with a matching pink scrunchy.

So I’ve felt like I really didn’t have a home since I moved out of my parents’ house at 19. As their only child, they just wanted me to be happy, but my happiness came from gymnastics.
She also earned nine medals in the World Championships during her career. It resonates with my brand, but it’s not necessarily my favorite. So I don’t really have a favorite color in general. Well, I always get asked, no matter where I am, whether it’s with little kids or adults, if I can do a flip. Finally, I feel like we’ve established a base, and when I’m on the road, I can’t wait to get back to Boston. I would totally support my child doing it, but I would never push them into it. My golden piece of advice—which is something my mom always told me—was: “You can never quit on a bad day.” After a bad day of training, I’d say I wanted to stop, and she’d say, “That’s fine, but not today.” She’d make me go back to the gym until I had a good day, and then she’d say, “You can make that decision.” But after a good day, of course, I never wanted to quit.
