Winning isn't everything to American surfer Carissa Moore. The extra year to prepare for Tokyo let Moore reconnect with why she loves to surf.
As the Olympics approached, Moore indicated she was thinking about more than winning a gold medal.
“Every year that I’m competing, I think things are evolving and changing with how I do things, especially with motivation,’’ she said. “I feel like I’m doing it because I want to do it and I love it, and there isn’t that pressure from anybody else.
“The journey isn’t over, but I definitely feel more settled in who I am today.’’
