London Olympics: Game Faces
Event: Equestrian, team three-day event
Getting ready: I always put my right boot on before my left. Right sock, right shoe, right pant leg, right sleeve. You couldn’t get me to put my left shoe on first.
Event: Judo, 78 kilograms
Getting ready: My luckiest item is my sports bra. It’s Nike and purple, my favorite color, and it says “Victory” on it. Haven’t fought without it since 2010.
Event: 10-meter air rifle
Getting ready: For motivation, I have a key chain of the chicken from the movie Hop with his arms crossed and looking mean.
Getting ready: A pre-competition nap and jam sesh in my hotel room while I do my hair and makeup. (On her playlist: “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber.)
