“Obviously I came here to win a medal and bring one home for Team USA, but I’m definitely trying right now to just take a moment and think about this whole career. It’s been amazing and it’s something I’m very proud of. I’m incredibly honored to be here representing Team USA. I’ve been jumping awesome and I’m happy. I’m excited for the next adventure, “ said Cook.
