Now, Hansen must get on with her post-Olympic career. She said she hasn’t made up her mind on whether she will try and make it to the 2018 Winter Olympics because of how much sacrifice goes into it. She just wants to go back to school at BYU and take it year by year.
Even if Hansen’s Olympic career has come to an end, she knows she got everything out of it that she possibly could.
“I’ve been home about two or three weeks, and I’ve just been busy every day,” Hansen said. “Every day I’m reminded of the Olympics, and I still haven’t really processed what happened in my life. It was a pretty unbelievable experience. I probably won’t come down from this cloud until I get to my first class.”
Hansen will deliver a public devotional at 7 p.m. Sunday at The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day, 1506 W. Imhoff Road.
She will share stories about her athletic career, the Olympics, deriving strength from trials and living her faith. The event is free and open to the public.
