He Kexin, post-Olympics
— 

Interviewer says everyone goes for the gold and asks her why didn’t she just gamble and do the 7.4 d score routine.

He Kexin: It’s not about what I want, it’s that I really can’t do it. These few days only when I am at optimal form can I attempt that routine and that does not happen every day. And to be frank these days I haven’t rested much. My body feels weak. I tried it yesterday…

Interviewer asks who made that decision.

He Kexin: I discussed it with my coaches but I made that decision myself. Because no matter how well they understand you, no matter how much hope they place on, you they won’t understand you the way you do. Because compared to 2008 I have been through a lot so I know it’s more important to do what you can handle well and not let that opportunity slip than to attempt something impossible.
