“Yes, I am definitely planning on competing at the 2026 Olympics. Um I will be taking a full season off of competition though, just for you know, my mental health just want to kind of reset, don’t want to get right back into it after such a fun, but draining year at the same time, knowing that it was an Olympic year. So, um I just want to enjoy this moment, take it all in and then get back to it when I’m feeling ready, but as of now the plan is most definitely to go after a third medal.” –Chloe Kim
