On her goals for Paris:

The Olympics in Tokyo were a little bit different for me. I kind of went in telling myself it was just another meet. I don't know if that was a good thing, and I don't know if it was a bad thing, necessarily, but for Paris Olympics, it's just to go out there, have fun, and show the world who I am.

On training with her husband Hunter Woodhall

We hold each other accountable. We're a partnership, we're a team, and every day, it's a new experience, but we get to do it together, so it makes it ten times better.

On the mental aspect of track and field

The mental side of track and field is almost as equal as the physical side. Every day you're telling yourself to wake up and go run and hurt your body and push your body to the limits.
