“It’s very exciting,” Legendre said. “Kind of coming off a few injuries this year. So things slowed down for a while. Just glad to be out there again, especially on that world stage. Looking forward to competing with Team USA.”
Williams said Legendre is starting to come back to his old form.
“He had some struggles coming back,” Williams said. “Four weeks out of the U.S. championships, I was really concerned that he hadn’t had enough time. The rod in his leg, the surgery to his elbow put him behind since the Olympics. The last four weeks, he kind of put it all together, put it out on the floor, and made the world team. Since then, he’s been great.”
Dalton also enters the tournament with a different frame of mind. This will be his third world championships so he enters as a veteran.
“This year I feel more prepared,” Dalton said. “I have bigger competitions under my belt. Little more experience. Been to the Olympics. Kind of understand how everything works. Know what to expect. Just think I really prepared myself to go out to be able to compete at the best level I can and potentially get some medals.”
