Other information
EVENT CHANGE
She plans to switch focus from the 10m platform to the 3m springboard after the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. "I will be done with the platform, whether or not I can continue is a question mark right now. My plan is to go down to the 3m springboard and just play around there a little bit to see if I want to keep going and my body can hold up. I want to stick around in this sport for a bit longer, as long as I can physically keep up everything." (player.fm, 06 Dec 2018)
