STANFORD, Calif. - On Sunday, we asked the question, Who Am I? Today, the identity of the mystery Stanford gymnast is revealed: It's Stanford sophomore Rebecca Wing.
In a poem posted Sunday on gostanford.com, Wing gave some clues as her identity. Among the characteristics she revealed: "I am artistic and independent," and "I understand that nothing worth having comes easy."
Enjoy the video introduction and the Q&A with Rebecca:
Q: How have your first couple weeks back to campus been?
A: It's been great! I've been busy with classes and I've been doing a lot of therapy for my knee injury. I've been spending a good chunk of time each day doing therapy and seeing doctors and such and that's going great. I've started biking this week, which is very exciting. My classes are going really well and practice is awesome.
Q: Is there anything you're particularly excited about academically this year?
A: I'm majoring in mechanical engineering and this year I'm going to start taking some of the classes for that, which I really love. I love physics and I'm in a class for that right now that's really exciting and fun.
Q: Do you have a favorite memory from SWG so far?
A: From last year, definitely Nationals stands out as an awesome memory. It was such a great experience. We had worked so hard all year and it was such a great competition. You could just see all our hard work from the year really paying off.
Q: What's your funniest SWG story?
A: My class as a whole is pretty goofy. Every day with them is just hilarious, inside of the gym and outside of the gym. We're always cracking jokes and doing stupid things. I love just hanging out with them.
Q: The team's motto this season is "All in. Every Moment." Is there a particular time that that really resonated with you?
A: In the gym just every single day. Individually we each try to be all in at every moment, but also as a team. We have to make sure that we're committed every day, focusing on the goals we've each talked about. We can hold each other accountable to the goals we've discussed.
Q: What can we expect from SWG this upcoming season?
A: I think this season's going to be really exciting. The team's looking great already and it's only the beginning of the pre-season. We're coming off a great year last year and this year we have even more depth - we have more girls, a lot of whom are competing three and even four events. It'll be great to have some more girls in the line-up, including new people, so that we can switch things up a little bit. We're definitely looking to build on last year and potentially do even better.
Q: I know you're working hard to come back from an injury. Do you want to tell us a little about how that's going?
A: Definitely. My rehab is going really well. I'm building and progressing every day. The therapists and the coaches and myself are pretty confident that I will be back by the middle to the end of season, which is really exciting. But I'm just taking it day by day at the moment, focusing on my exercises and being patient. I don't want to rush anything so I'm definitely focused on that. But it's looking really promising.
