TABITHA PETERSON: Hi, I'm Tabitha Peterson, skip of Team Peterson. And my team has been together for-- I want to say five or six years now. And we have had a good season so far this year leading up to the trials, and even with the abbreviated season last year, kind of made the best of what we were given and did well enough at the World Championships to get a spot for the US at the Olympics. So that's huge.

But yeah, I'm from the Twin Cities, Minnesota. I've lived there my whole life. So that's where I currently train. Things are going [? on. ?]

And I feel like in team sports, there's always that-- you know, you have to have that sense of team and get along. And that's a huge part of performance, I think, to make sure that the team does get along, and you're all on the same page about goals, and how much work you're putting in, and all that.

And so we get along great. And we know where each other's heads are at, and we know that everyone's putting the work in. And so there's a lot of trust that goes along with it too. And so that's part of it.
