Interview With Meryl Davis | POPSUGAR Celebrity

It might seem easy for up-and-coming athletes to stay focused when there’s so much ahead of them to achieve . . . so many contests, so many medals. But for one professional figure skater, figuring out how to remain focused after winning wasn’t as easy as she thought.

In a scene from Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff’s new series from POPSUGAR and Watchable, Gold medalist figure skater Meryl Davis opens up about what happened after she and her partner won their medal in ice dance at the Sochi Olympics.

“After [my partner and I] came back from Sochi, we came back to life in Michigan and felt as though our lives were different,” she begins. “I didn’t have that same goal when I got up in the morning. I bought myself this butterfly necklace to symbolize for myself that it was OK to spread my wings and it was OK to grow.”

Her butterfly necklace now serves as a constant reminder that she can go after anything she wants — something we can all do as well.
