Laurie Hernandez talks new children’s book, announces she’s training for 2020 Olympics.
The two-time Olympic medalist Laurie Hernandez also announced she is returning to gymnastics.
The 18-year-old made the announcement on “Good Morning America” Thursday, saying she is “currently training.”
“Crossing your fingers for 2020,” Hernandez said of the future Olympics, which will be held in Tokyo.
“Whenever I’m competing, I’m pretty much terrified before I go up there,” Hernandez said. “And so, it’s making sure that I can calm myself down before I hop onto the equipment. And for me, that’s a lot of self-talk and self-preparation and it’s being my own hype man.”
