As our team captain, Alicia had rallied and encouraged us countless times; now it was my turn to encourage her. Once I’d finished my routine, I sat down next to Alicia, smiled at her, and took her arm in mine. The press assumed she apologized and I told her we still loved her. That’s not quite accurate. Actually, to get her to smile, I brought up an inside joke that had been circulating among our team. I wanted to keep her mind off what had just happened. -Winning Balance by Shawn Johnson (p. 96)
