Lindsey Jacobellis Quotes

Find here Lindsey Jacobellis Quotes, she said after winning the Olympic gold medal.

1. “I wanted to just come here and compete. It would have been a nice, sweet thing, but I think if I tried to spin the thought of redemption, then it’s (not) the task at hand. And that’s not why I race. That’s not why I’ve been a competitor.”

2. “They can keep talking about all they want. Because it really shaped me into the individual that I am and kept me hungry and really kept me fighting in the sport.”

3. “I wasn’t really having fun with it. There was so much pressure on me to be the golden girl.”

4. “It was definitely a possibility. And I had that in my mind, but knowing that that’s OK, if that doesn’t come. That it doesn’t define who you are a person or who you are as an athlete. Any lady had the ability to come out here and win, really. And that’s how our sport can work at times. It’s just a roll of the dice, sometimes. It’s how the stars are aligned. How your body’s feeling. How your board is running.”

5. “It kind of just seemed like an unbelievable moment. It didn’t seem real at the time. I had to take a hot lap.”

Inspiring Quotes by Lindsey Jacobellis

6. “This feels incredible because the level that all the women are riding at is a lot higher than it was 16 years ago.”

7. “I was watching her in the Olympics before I even got into the sport. I would use her as an inspiration for what kind of boards I wanted to use, bindings, boots, everything … for her to come out here and not give up is pretty inspirational.”

8. “It was never about redemption. I didn’t have that in my mind coming here, I just wanted to have fun, being my fifth appearance at an Olympics. My thought going into this was, ‘it’s either going to happen or it’s not’, and ‘it could be my day or it could be another one of the ladies’ days’, so it just happened that all the stars lined up for me, for it to be my day.”
