Simply put, “I feel like it’s a win-win situation.”
Although Sunisa will continue to flaunt her remarkable abilities as an Auburn University professional athlete, she asserts that she’s wishing to reboot and recharge initially.
“Right now, rest is the main focus because at the Olympics I was a little bit beat up,” she exposed. “Coming here, I was hoping to let my body rest, and mentally as well, because that does take a lot out of me.”
She continued, “I just want to focus on myself and getting ready for the season. I have a really good team behind me. I’m excited for everything that’s going to be coming in the future.”
If anything, Sunisa’s primarily eagerly anticipating being a typical university student.
“A lot of people here know me. I just got here so of course people are going to be excited,” she discussed of her newly found fame. “Once it dies down, I feel like it will be a little better and I’ll be able to do stuff and be able to go somewhere without being called out. I’m really happy to be here.”
She concluded, “I just wanted to have some fun. Elite gymnastics was so hard and there’s never any time to have fun or hang out with your friends. Coming here, I can be more free, and I’m just excited to be part of a team.”
On Friday,Aug 13, Sunisa showed simply how fired up she is for this brand-new chapter. The Olympian shared an Instagram image of herself happily rocking an Auburn Tee shirts while posturing in front of a school structure. She captioned her post, “war eagle.”
