STANFORD, Calif. -
Last Sunday we asked the question, "Who am I?" Today, the identity of the mystery Stanford gymnast is revealed: it's Stanford junior, Lucy Meyer. In a poem posted on Sunday on GoStanford.com, Meyer gave some clues to her identity.
Enjoy Lucy's Q&A with team manager, Tori Lewis:
Tori: How was your winter break?
Lucy: It was really good. I got to do a lot of traveling. I got to go to the Rose Bowl which was really fun. I spent a lot of time with family. We stayed in the hotel as a team, which is always fun, to bond and spend a ton of time together.
Tori: How is the beginning of the season looking, from your perspective?
Lucy: It looks great. We're looking really strong already. We're starting out exactly where we want to be and things are going according to plan so it's shaping up to be a really good year.
Tori: What things are you trying to incorporate from the preseason?
Lucy: Everything is always worth it. All the work we put in and all the work we'll continue to put in, it'll all be worth it in the end. If we can be the hardest working team in the country, that will get us where we want to be.
Tori: Do you have a favorite memory from SWG so far?
Lucy: There have been so many good ones! Now I can say our first meet. Either that or staying in the hotel together and really get bonded. But the first meet is one of those things that you never forget.
Tori: What's your funniest SWG story?
Lucy: We were moving into the hotel right after [winter] break. Ashley Morgan was walking out the door and she turned to talk to us. She finished her sentence, turned around, and walked right into the glass! She definitely made a lot of friends in the hotel lobby.
Tori: The team's motto this season is "All in. Every Moment." Was there a particular time that motto really resonated with you?
Lucy: During our circuits on Mondays in practice, everyone just puts everything into those twelve minutes. Everyone really puts all they have into those moments, knowing that's what's going to separate us [from the other teams] at the end of the year.
Tori: How's your academic quarter looking?
Lucy: It looks good! It'll be challenging, but fun. I'm really interested in several of the classes that I'm taking and I'll be able to get some pre-med requirements out of the way.
Tori: What are you looking forward to the most about the upcoming season?
Lucy: Just spending time with the team and getting to know them better. I want to show the rest of the teams in the country what we're made of and put all of the hard work from preseason to good use!
