Following the competition, the three time Olympian tweeted, “I fought hard and pulled a solid jump out of the depths of what was a mediocre night! 10 years of experience on the pro circuit allowed me to execute in the last round and come away with a silver. I’m highly disappointed but I’m moving in the right direction.”
