“I had to be right after Paige and I had to have one boat between me and Sarah Douglas (CAN) and the same with Monika Mikkola (FIN). I had to take that opportunity to do everything I could to at least get a medal.
“Before the Championship, I was ready to go all in and win gold because I’ve had a good season and prepared a lot. But the final (qualifying race – race 10) didn’t go the way that I wanted, especially the last race. Pretty disappointing for me.
“The nickname the ‘Bulldozer’ came from the Rio Olympics, when I got disqualified in the third race and the day after that, there was a lot of wind. One of the Finn guys from the Danish team said to me that I should just go out there and be a bulldozer and just cross everybody, and I did that on the day and came first and third in the two races. That nickname stuck to me ever since.” (Photo above: victorious. Photo below: Not so glorious).
