[ Q ] Describe your Olympia experience?

    This was my second figure Olympia and it was again a great experience. This year I was a little more relaxed coming into the show. I did not feel the pressure that I had felt from last years show. I had a great time at Meet the Olympians as well as at the gala. It is nice to mix with the other competitors and fans and friends that come to watch us compete.

[ Q ] Were you happy with your physique and presentation on the night?

    I recently started training with Kim Oddo and I felt that he brought me in very tight and small. I was happy with my presentation and physique, but I also know that there is always room for improvement. That is what we are going to do in the off-season, improve!
