Gould sticking to the plan for worlds after Olympic success

A solid support system

Gould is quick to acknowledge that, “I’ve definitely had times where I was like, ‘I don’t know, maybe I’m just slow now, maybe I’ve just run out of fastness and I’m on the down-slope.'”

It is the support of those around her, she points out, that puts her back on the up-slope.

“I’ve definitely benefited from having just [a] really solid support network around me,” she says, emphasizing “my husband, my coach, my team managers, just all people that really believe in me at times when I was like, ‘I don’t know what’s going on.'”

A solid support network is so critical that, according to Gould, “I can’t attribute it all to myself… definitely having really great people around me has really helped me out.”
